In the context of learning French as a second language, the interaction competence is a key skill to build. Our contribution draws from the idea that learners communicate and interact with their interlocutors, for the construction of linguistic and disciplinary knowledge. While teacher-student interactions are the subject of much research, peer-to-peer work is still opaque. From a literacy activity between Grade 6th immersion students, and using a sociolinguistic approach, our contribution shows the mechanisms and strategies of collaborative work used by learners in the resolution of a literacy task.
