Written for students encountering the topic for the first time, this introduction explains in non-technical language how a second language is acquired; what the second language learner needs to know; and why some learners are more successful than others. The textbook logically introduces a range of fundamental concepts--such as SLA in adults and children, formal and informal learning contexts, and diverse socio-cultural settings. It takes an interdisciplinary approach, encouraging students to consider SLA from linguistic, psychological and social perspectives.

Book Description:

This accessible new textbook provides a clear and practical introduction to second language acquisition (SLA). Designed for students with just a basic knowledge of linguistics, it considers three key questions: What exactly does the second language learner need to know? How does the learner acquire this knowledge? And why are some learners more successful than others? Introducing in a step-by-step fashion a range of fundamental concepts in SLA, this book is set to become the leading introduction to the field for students of linguistics, psychology, education, and trainee language teachers.
