Title: Expertise in Second Language Learning and Teaching
Edited By: Keith Johnson

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced title.

New Edition

'In a nutshell Expertise in Second Language Learning and Teaching as a
whole is a book written by experts for experts in whose hands it will live
many lives.' - ELT Journal

What makes a language learner an expert? What do skilled learners and
second language users do as they listen, speak, read and write? This book
provides an overview of how questions like these are being answered by
applied linguists. It considers also similar questions about the expertise
of language teaching professionals, task designers and teacher trainers as
well as teachers. Throughout, the book draws heavily on the literature
dealing with expertise in general, applying ideas and insights from that
literature to the language learning and teaching fields. Questions about
how expertise can be taught are also considered. The book will be of
interest to all those involved in language teaching and language teacher
education who believe that knowing what constitutes expertise in these
areas is essential if we are successfully to train experts.
