From Vygotskyan perspective, writing development requires apprenticeship, practice and expert guidance (Vygotsky, 1997). Finally, the investigation of instructional techniques has shown that explicit training in metacognitive strategies, techniques from planning, drafting and revising and maximising on feedback on writing are very helpful to the L2 writer.

Learning according to this theory happens through regulation of one’s activity, initially through external regulation and subsequently through self-regulation. Through a process of supportive dialogue, also known as Bruner’s (Bigge & Shermis, 1999) scaffolding, the learner’s attention is directed to the key features of the environment, thus inducing the shift from inter-mental to intra-mental activity. e. a domain where the learner is not yet capable of independent functioning, but can accomplish tasks with the help of scaffolding, which elicits interest in the task and makes sure that that interest continues, simplifies the task, draws attention to its critical elements, controls the frustration and demonstrates the target version.

The term interlanguage itself was first introduced by Larry Selinker (1972), who claims that IL depends on five central processes: (1) language transfer, (2) overgeneralisation of L2 rules, (3) transfer of training, (4) strategies of L2 learning, and (5) communication strategies. Thus Selinker postulates both an independent grammar and a psychological process leading to IL creation (Cook, 1993: 19). The research of the processes is largely indirect in nature and is not the subject of this book.
