While writing collaboratively, second language students (L2) have the opportunity to discuss the language that they will use in their co-written work and they can also receive feedback from their peers on their language use, while making proposals for the co-written text, that may draw their attention to incorrect language use. These interactive processes provide learners with opportunities to learn about correct language use that are not provided by independent writing. However, there may be concerns about accuracy of the feedback that learners provide to each other and concerns about the ability of L2 students to effectively discuss language use. This study provides information about student interaction in L2 collaborative writing by reviewing 96 examples of collaborative writing dialogue to assess the types of interaction that take place, and the correctness of information that students provide. Through semi-structured interviews with L2 learners, it also outlines student opinions about the benefits and drawbacks of peer interaction in collaborative writing.
