View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This volume was conceived as a first book in SLA for advanced undergraduate or introductory master’s courses that include education majors, foreign language education majors, and English majors. It’s also an excellent resource for practicing teachers. 

Both the research and pedagogy in this book are based on the newest research in the field of second language acquisition.  It is not the goal of this book to address every SLA theory or teach research methodology.  It does however address the myths and questions that non-specialist teacher candidates have about language learning.

Steven Brown is the co-author of the introductory applied linguistics textbook Understanding Language Structure, Interaction, and Variation  textbook (and workbook).

The myths challenged in this book are:
 

§  Children learn languages quickly and easily while adults are ineffective in comparison.

§  A true bilingual is someone who speaks two languages perfectly.

§  You can acquire a language simply through listening or reading.

§  Practice makes perfect.

§  Language students learn (and retain) what they are taught.

§  Language learners always benefit from correction.

§  Individual differences are a major, perhaps the major, factor in SLA.

§  Language acquisition is the individual acquisition of grammar.
