Project Description

The focal interactants are adult international students who spoke English as a second language and who had newly arrived at an Australian university. These undergraduate international students from various Asian backgrounds interacted over a period of seven months with Australian graduate students who were native speakers of English. The interactions took place in English at the university outside of class. The interactants did not know each other at the beginning of the study.
