Abstract:

This book explores the importance of cross-linguistic similarity in foreign

distant target languages.

Key Features:
- Argues that second/foreign language learning should be split into two
types: learning for comprehension and learning for production
- Also provides a survey of research in the learning of English in Finland

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
                            Language Acquisition

Subject Language(s): English (eng)
                            Finnish (fin)
