Pragmatic aspects of language, therefore, have taken center stage in constructivist approaches towards language pedagogy which unlike cognitive theories do not believe in the development of language in isolation and on the contrary emphatically stress the role of environment and interaction as necessary factors contributing to language proficiency.
