From Languaging to Leaning: Examining Specialized Vocabulary Learning Opportunities in Preparing for and Giving Acadmeic Oral Group Presentions Under Chinese EFL Context

Short abstract of thesis
Peer-peer interaction is pervasively perceived beneficial to language learning whilst under researched is whether and how collaborative learning mediates technical vocabulary learning. Addressing this gap, Wenhao's study explores how Chinese undergraduates collaborate with each other in preparing group and individual presentations and how collaboration affects students' technical vocabulary learning and use. It is hoped that his findings can contribute in ESP program design and technical vocabulary acquisition.
