Abstract:

Written for students encountering the topic for the first time, this is aclear and practical introduction to second language acquisition (SLA). Usingnon-technical language, it explains how a second language is acquired; whatthe learner of a second language needs to know; and why some learners are moresuccessful than others. This new edition of Muriel Saville-Troike'sbestselling textbook introduces in a step-by-step fashion a range offundamental concepts, such as SLA in adults and children, in formal andinformal learning contexts and in diverse socio-cultural settings. Taking aninterdisciplinary approach, it encourages students to consider SLA fromlinguistic, psychological and social perspectives. Providing a solidfoundation in SLA, this book has become the leading introduction to the fieldfor students of linguistics, psychology and education, and trainee languageteachers.
