Abstract

Collaborative word acquisition (CWA) is an important pedagogical approach to language learning for L2 learners. As an incidental word learning method, CWA facilitates word learning of learners in terms of their group discussions and negotiation about target words, the effectiveness of which seems to rely to a large extent on the involvement of interactions among learners. In this paper, we propose a framework for computer-supported CWA and compare it with conventional CWA in terms of the effectiveness in promoting word learning. The rationale of this proposed framework is verified by our preliminary empirical results.
