AbstractThis paper demonstrates that it is necessary to look at learners’ gestures and speech to have a complete picture of their conceptualizations in their L2. It argues that context and task affect learners’ speech and gesture and need to be considered in SLA. A comparison of the speech and gesture of an L2 learner in two tasks (an oral proficiency interview and a narration task) over a fourteen-year period of time shows that fewer gestures per clause and primarily metaphoric gestures were produced in the oral proficiency task and more gestures per clause and primarily iconic gestures were produced in the narration. Implications for second language teaching are discussed.
