Implementing the concept of ‘pedagogic mediation’ with the use of language corpora for the teaching of Portuguese as an L2 or L3
Despite the salient benefits of using language corpora to guide and promote second language acquisition, it is not a straightforward proposition to develop a pedagogical approach based on the use of a language corpus. In the present chapter, we address the implementation of Flowerdew’s concept of “pedagogic mediation” through the use of a guided-induction, corpus-based approach to the teaching of Portuguese as a third language to speakers of Spanish and English. We use a contrastive approach and focus on linguistic properties that are systematically different in Portuguese and Spanish and that could potentially be subject to negative crosslinguistic influence.
