The acquisition of oral proficiency has always been critical to the teaching and learning of foreign/second language all over the world. Meanwhile, recent researches have suggested that cognitive strategies could be helpful in the learners’ efforts at acquiring both oral and writing proficiencies in foreign/second languages. After a brief survey of the major theoretical considerations as well as empirical dispositions in the domain of Cognition and private speech as they relate to foreign/second language teaching and learning, we discuss in this article the possible interface between the two concepts as it concerns the learning of oral expression.
