Abstract: The Sociocultural Theory (SCT) has influenced Second Language Acquisition (SLA) and teaching these days. This theory has rooted in different domains of SLA including interaction, cognitive processes and individual differences. This paper is a review of how Sociocultural Theory (SCT) be incorporated into SLA and teaching. Six out of seventeen statements that Lightbown and Spada (2006) revealed as the most popular opinions in the field of SLA and teaching have been examined to see the consensus of these statements with Sociocultural Theory (SCT). This review concludes that Sociocultural Theory (SCT) provides new insights over SLA and teaching in which may be useful for second language (L2) learning activities and teaching atmosphere. However, most studies have also supported the inconclusinve statements of issues in SLA and teaching which are also identified from the perspective of the sociocultural Theory (SCT). They are that the 'how' in SLA is much more critical than the 'what' or 'when'.
