Book summary A summary of the book L.S. Vygotsky, the renowned Russian psychologist, argued that the true test of any scientific theory is not the contribution it makes to our understanding of the object of study but the extent to which it improves the concrete practical activities of people, including those that take place in educational settings. This book represents a major statement of the current research being conducted into the learning of second languages from a sociocultural perspective. Topics covered include: learning and teaching languages in the zone of proximal development; L1 mediation in the acquisition of L2 grammar and sociocultural theory as a theory of second language.
