Fifty-seven chapters are organized in 8 thematic sections: social contexts of second language learning; research methodologies in second-language learning, acquisition, and teaching; contributions of applied linguistics to the teaching and learning of second language skills; second language processes and development; teaching methods and curricula; issues in second or foreign language testing and assessment; identity, culture, and critical pedagogy in second language teaching and learning; and important considerations in language planning and policies.
