Title: Second Language Learning and Language Teaching. Fourth Edition
Written By: Vivian James Cook

The fourth edition of this classic textbook has been revised to reflect
recent developments in language teaching and learning yet retains the basic
structure and approach so popular with its readers. Teaching and learning
content has been updated, particularly taking into account the rise of
task-based learning, Conversational Analysis and social models of second
language acquisition, changes in national syllabuses and examinations and
the increasing controversy over the role of the native speaker target. Each
chapter has been revised to stand alone, enabling the text to be taught and
studied out of sequence if preferred. A set of focussing questions has also
been added to each and further reading sections have been updated. In
addition, icons appear throughout the text signalling where extra
information - summaries, data, lecture notes, test batteries and more - can
be found on the author's accompanying website,

Second Language Learning and Language Teaching remains the essential
textbook for all student teachers of modern languages and TESOL as well as
applied linguistics.
