About the Authors
  • Providing a comprehensive survey of cutting-edge work on second language learning, this Handbook, written by a team of leading experts, surveys the nature of second language learning and its implications for teaching. Prominent theories and methods from linguistics, psycholinguistics, processing-based, and cognitive approaches are covered and organised thematically across sections dealing with skill development, individual differences, pedagogical interventions and approaches, and context and environment. This state-of-the-art volume will interest researchers in second language studies and language education, and will also reach out to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in these and other related areas.

    • Covers an exhaustive range of research and provides refreshing insights from top experts regarding new directions
    • Puts specific focus on language learning in a wide range of settings, providing readers with a broad overview of multiple contexts
    • Addresses a growing need and interest to better understand theories of language learning and the instructional interventions that facilitate such learning

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This volume has both breadth and depth. It covers both theoretical and applied issues from multiple perspectives. Implications of theory and research for learning and teaching are not dealt with as an afterthought, but are thoroughly discussed by leading experts. Many chapters and lists of references will be consulted by colleagues and graduate students for years to come.' Robert DeKeyser, University of Maryland

    'The vitality of the language learning field is evident in this volume. It is packed with theoretical perspectives and research reviews. It is the first place that I will recommend my students go for an up-to-date treatment of topics germane to their interests.' Diane Larsen-Freeman, University of Michigan

    'This comprehensive and up-to-date Handbook is bound to be a key source of references for years to come. It covers an impressive range of research activity, while offering refreshing insights and pointing readers in new directions. The focus on language learning in a wide range of settings is admirable and the leitmotif of language teaching is a welcome theme.' Roy Lyster, McGill University, Montreal

    'This Handbook is an exciting treatise of the vibrant intersections between second language acquisition and language teaching. Seminal researchers across areas offer expert syntheses of what is known about second language development in formal learning contexts. As co-editors, Schwieter and Benati have achieved an admirable breadth, balancing theories and methods and covering all relevant classroom and instruction angles. A must read!' Lourdes Ortega, Georgetown University, Washington DC
