Embodied and Occasioned Learnables and Teachables in Early EFL classrooms

Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


This paper investigates, through conversation analysis, how early EFL teachers use gestures as repair resources and how pupils orient to these embodied repairs. The data show that embodied repair practices lead to occasioned teachables and learnables and we argue that these constitute the primordial scenes where usage-based FL learning begins.
