TEFL Interviews: Shawn Loewen on Instructed Second Language Acquisition

Today we bring you an interview Dr. Shawn Loewen. Shawn works on the Second Language Studies program at Michigan State University. His primary area of research is Instructed Second Language Acquisition (ISLA), particularly in relation to classroom interaction, as well as L2 instructional practices, including visual input enhancement, corrective feedback, and task-based interaction.

 

Matt sat down and spoke with Shawn during a weekend-long seminar that he was giving at Temple University, Japan earlier this spring. Matt asked Shawn questions about ISLA, as well as related matters.
