Title: Introducing Second Language Acquisition
Written By: Muriel Saville-Troike
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521794077
Series Title: Cambridge Introductions to Language and Linguistics
Description:

Written for students encountering the topic for the first time, this is a
clear and practical introduction to second language acquisition (SLA). It
explains in non-technical language how a second language is acquired; what
the second language learner needs to know; and why some learners are more
successful than others. The textbook introduces in a step-by-step fashion a
range of fundamental concepts - such as SLA in adults and children, in
formal and informal learning contexts, and in diverse socio-cultural
settings - and takes an interdisciplinary approach, encouraging students to
consider SLA from linguistic, psychological and social perspectives. Each
chapter contains a list of key terms, a summary, and a range of graded
exercises suitable for self-testing or class discussion. Providing a solid
foundation in SLA, this book is set to become the leading introduction to
the field for students of linguistics, psychology, and education, and
trainee language teachers.
