Adults continue to access object-, other- and self-regulation
1896 – 1934Lev Semeonovich Vygotsky
Adults continue to access object- and other-regulation in cognizing difficult tasks
Use depends on the difficulty of a task – because each form is connected to specific tools

“There are no absolute differences between second language and native speakers, as is often assumed to be the case in many studies which purport to compare native and second language performance”
“An individual never actually becomes an adult to remain an adult.”
“… errors may not be errors as such, but may well represent a speaker’s attempt to gain control of a task.”
