Book Information


Title: Second Language Learning and Language Teaching
Written By: Vivian James Cook
Description:

'This much needed book will be an excellent text for courses in Language
Acquisition within second language teacher education programs. There is a
wealth of new knowledge, new vocabulary, and new perspectives which not
only contribute to specialized aspects of teacher training but will enrich
students' general education as well.' Patsy Lightbrown, Professor of
Applied Linguistics, Concordia University, Canada

In its first two editions 'Second Language Learning and Language Teaching'
has been a world-wide best-seller, and is admired for its ability to show
students interested in becoming language teachers the relevance of second
language learning research and theory.

The Third edition has been prepared following feedback from teachers using
the first two editions. It offers a much fuller discussion of language
teaching and, in particular, highlights some of the places where second
language acquisition research contradicts standard language teaching
beliefs by analysing some standard TEFL handbooks and coursebooks from
different countries. In addition, there is increased emphasis on the
importance of the student's becoming an independent L2 user. Despite the
extensive updating and revision, the broad framework and approach of the
successful second edition have been maintained.
