It might be easily accepted that learning and understanding can be positively influenced by some forms of social interaction. In the past, different aspects of social interaction have already been proposed for this purpose. The concrete form of social interaction can be communicated or even enforced by providing a script or might be subject to an individual process of self-guidance which is based on being well informed about the partner, the situation, and the development of the ongoing social interaction. Some chapters of this book as well as this one address these alternatives.
