    This study examined how proficiency differences affect the nature of collaborative dialogues in terms of linguistic (i.e., language-related episodes and test scores) and affective outcomes. Four Japanese ESL learners in Canada performed, with higher-proficiency and lower-proficiency peer partners, pair writing, pair comparison (between their original text and reformulated version), and individual writing tasks. Data include audio-recordings of the pair talk, written compositions, and the four learners" pre-task, stimulated recall and post-task interview protocols. I analyzed each pair"s collaborative dialogue, their linguistic and affective outcomes, and the four learners" attitudes towards working with their different proficiency peers. The findings suggested that the patterns of interaction (Storch, 2002a) and how the learners felt about their interactions greatly influenced their post-test performance. When the learners engaged in the collaborative patterns of interaction and felt positive about their interaction, they were more likely to achieve higher post-test score regardless of their partner"s proficiency level.
