Language Socializaon approaches to SLA (Du and Talmy)
-understanding development through interacon with others who are more knowledgeable or procient
-examines micro and macro contexts in which language is learned and used and employs longitudinal
research designs that feature ethnography and linguisc/discourse analyc methods
-seeks to account for and explain learning in broader terms, examining not only linguisc development
but also the other forms of knowledge that are learned in and through language
They include:
-culture
-social knowledge
-ideologies (of the world, of naonality, and of language itself)
-epistemologies (re"ecng sources of knowledge, degrees of certainty, evidenality)
-idenes and subjecvies (ex non-nave speakers)
-a$ect (ex. The expression of posive or negave emoons like pleasure or shame)
-looks at interaconal or sociolinguisc rounes that become part of learners and users communicave
repetoires
-focuses on local social, polical, and cultural contexts in which language is learned and used; and the
historical aspects of language and culture learning, on contestaon and change across mescales, and on
the cultural content of linguisc structures and pracces
-commonales to other theories include a deeply ecological perspecve of learning in context and a
concomitant analysis of learning through praxis (observaon, parcipaon, and performance) in the
everyday acvies of communies of language users
-views language learners/users as sociohistorically, socioculturally, and socio-polically situated

in everyday life
Theorecal principles
-roots in linguisc anthropology , sociology, cultural psychology etc etc
-addresses the complexies of kids or adults with already developed repertoires of lingusicm discursive
and cultural pracces as they encounter new ones
-learners are agents who may contest or transform as well as accommodate pracces that others
a'empt to induct them into
-learners socialize others into THEIR idenes and pracces
-social interacon with more procient mebers of a parcular community centrally mediates the
development of both communicave competence and knowledge of the values, pracces, idenes,
ideologies, and stances of that community
-socializaon is by/mul direconal and can lead to the internalizaon and reproducon of exisng L2
cultural and communicave pracces
-it is a conngent process
-bc language learning and socializaon are lifelong processes in which new ways of acng,
