On one front, he is a premier Italian language scholar producing the most empirical work on the teaching and acquisition of Italian in the world. On the other front, he is a scholar in the more general field of instructed SLA, with an emphasis on the effects of formal instruction on the acquisition of grammatical properties by second language learners. He has a strong publications record with 12 established monographs, chapters and articles in international journals (Language Awareness, IRAL, and Language Teaching Research).

Description

This chapter summarises the findings of the empirical research presented in Chapters 3–5, and place it in the context of previous research on PI. Moreover, the pedagogical implications are extrapolated, focusing not only on delivering PI in classrooms and on computers, but on PI as part of a sequence of learning activities for grammar instruction that move learners from processing input to producing output.
