Second Language Learning Theories is an introduction to
the field of second language learning for students without a
substantial background in linguistics. Drawing on the
expertise of both a specialist in the teaching of second
languages and a linguist specializing in second language
acquisition, this textbook provides an up-to-date
introductory survey of the most active and significant
perspectives on the subject.

In this new edition, the authors have revised and updated the
text throughout to reflect the substantial developments that
have taken place in the field in recent years. New studies
have been incorporated as examples and there is more
material on work in L2 phonology and lexis, as well as
syntax. The evaluation sections in each chapter have been
expanded and generally the book is rebalanced in favor of
newer material.

The first edition quickly established itself as the
textbook of choice for students new to second language
learning. The updates and revisions in this new edition
ensure that the book remains as fresh, engaging and useful
as the day it was first published.
