The last decade has seen a growing body of research investigating various
aspects of L2 learners' performance of tasks. This book focuses on one task
implementation variable: planning. It considers theories of how
opportunities to plan a task affect performance and tests claims derived
from these theories in a series of empirical studies. The book examines
different types of planning (i.e. task rehearsal, pre-task planning and
within-task planning), addressing both what learners do when they plan and
the effects of the different types of planning on L2 production. The choice
of planning as the variable for investigation in this book is motivated
both by its importance for current theorizing about L2 acquisition (in
particular with regard to cognitive theories that view acquisition in terms
of information processing) and its utility to language teachers and
language testers, for unlike many other constructs in SLA 'planning' lends
itself to external manipulation. The study of planning, then, provides a
suitable forum for demonstrating the interconnectedness of theory, research
and pedagogy in SLA.
