Abstract:
			
This second edition is an extensive revision of the first edition of
this successful text. Like the first edition, the second edition
surveys the major approaches and methods in language teaching, such as
grammar translation, audiolingualism, communicative language teaching,
and the natural approach. The text examines each approach and method
in terms of its theory of language and language learning, goals,
syllabus, teaching activities, teacher and learner roles, materials,
and classroom techniques.In addition to the approaches and methods
covered in the first edition, this edition includes new chapters, such
as whole language, multiple intelligences, neurolinguistic
programming, competency-based language teaching, cooperative language
learning, content-based instruction, task-based language teaching, and
The Post-Methods Era.Teachers and teachers-in-training will discover
that this second edition is a comprehensive survey and analysis of the
major and minor teaching methods used around the world. The book seeks
not only to clarify the assumptions behind these methods and their
similarities and differences, but also to help teachers explore their
own beliefs and practices in language teaching.

Abstract:
			
The influence of cognitive processing on second language acquisition
(SLA), and on the development of second language (SL) instruction, has
always been a subject of major interest to both SLA researchers and
those involved in SL pedagogy. Recent theoretical research into SLA
and SL pedagogy has shown renewed interest in the role of cognitive
variables such as attention, short, working, and long term memory, and
automaticity of language processing. This volume first examines the
theoretical foundations of research into the cognitive processes
underlying SLA, and then describes various implications for
pedagogically oriented research and for SL classroom practice. This
book's blend of research from the cognitive sciences and applied
linguistics make it an excellent introduction to applied linguists and
language teachers interested in the psycholinguistic processes
underlying SLA.
