    Abstract

    In our precursor research (Saito & Akiyama, 2017 in Language Learning), we reported that one academic semester of video-based L2 interaction activity was facilitative of various dimensions of the Japanese learners’ spontaneous production ability development (e.g., comprehensibility, fluency and vocabulary). In this paper, we aimed to revisit the dataset to examine the effects of long-term interaction on the development of L2 comprehension ability. Following the interactionist account of L2 comprehension ability development (e.g., Ellis et al., 1994), we predicted that longitudinal interaction would enhance Japanese learners’ comprehension (measured via a general listening proficiency test), as it could provide opportunities for comprehensible input and output during meaning-oriented discourse.
