This book is a valuable resource for researchers, teachers, and teachers in training. Through a selected integration of chapters from leading researchers in both areas, the volume explores the contexts, processes, and products that comprise the disciplines known as second language acquisition and foreign language learning. The aims of the collection are to offer various perspectives on how second language acquisition and foreign language learning come together as fields of inquiry and to suggest how foreign language teaching benefits from research in language learning.
