    This is not a very well-written sentence - it uses a style and vocabulary that are unnecessarily complicated!
    Here is my rewrite (although I'm not sure I understand what the writer is trying to say, exactly):


    Firstly, scaffolding views language learning as contingent and afforded by on teacher interacting to interaction with a learnerís needs or lack deficiencies, which this can reveal pedagogy in its interactive stance form.

    Re: find a mistake(s)?

    Thank you to all replies. It got to maintain some e.g. " afforded by" because it restores a main meaning of the term. Academic writing is sth that always confuse me with rare seen words or complicated structures and meanings.
