From the Back Cover:

Bringing together an international team of specialists from the fields of applied linguistics, second language acquisition, linguistics, education, and psychology, The Handbook of Language Teaching is a wide-ranging and invaluable reference guide. The chapters are structured into seven major sections: the psycholinguistic underpinnings of language learning; social, political, and educational contexts; program design; materials writing and course design; teaching and testing; teacher education; and assessment and evaluation.

Providing a unique breadth of coverage, the Handbook combines the latest research findings on core topics, as well as in several rapidly developing areas, including the language-learning brain, heritage language programs, study abroad, and less commonly taught languages. English is only one of the many languages used as examples throughout. The volume also explores the increasingly important political and social implications on language teaching. The result is an invaluable resource for anyone involved in second or foreign language teaching, SLA, psycholinguistics, and applied linguistics.
