Strategies in Learning and Using a Second Language examines what it takes to achieve long-term success in languages beyond the first language. Distinguishing language learning from language-use strategies, Andrew D. Cohen disentangles a morass of terminology to help the reader see what language strategies are and how they can enhance performance.
Particular areas of research examined in the book include, links between the use of task-specific strategies and language performance, how multilinguals verbalise their thoughts during language learning and use and strategies that learners use in test-taking contexts.
