Abstract
Abstract
Following Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development, the learner collaboration that takes place between more capable and less capable learner, this poster presents four different case studies of assisted learning from the student teachers (STs). Learners who received help were interviewed and asked to see whether the STs were helpful in their process of language learning. The observation and comprehension checks indicated that most of the students felt they improved their English; however, they also expressed that time is a big factor in their learning process with the STs.
