Scaffolding

1 min read

‘Scaffolding’ refers to the way a competent language speaker helps a less competent one to communicate by both encouraging and providing possible elements of conversation. It is the way a primary-school teacher might help a young child to communicate, or the way a chat-show host might draw out a guest. (Scrivener, J. Learning Teaching )
