Abstract:It is the purpose of this paper to examine the effect of task type on the input and interaction in nonnative speaker-nonnative speaker (NNS-NNS) dyads. The study which we report analyzes the speech generated by dyads of Japanese and Mandarin Chinese speakers enrolled in English as a second language (ESL) classes at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Two types of pedagogic tasks, namely problem-solving tasks (PS) and debates (D), and two examples of each, are the focus of this study.
