    DescriptionSecond Language Learning Theories is an introduction to the field of second language learning for students without a substantial background in linguistics. Drawing on the expertise of both a specialist in the teaching of second languages and a linguist specializing in second language acquisition, this textbook provides an up-to-date introductory survey of the most active and significant perspectives on the subject. In this new edition, the authors have revised and updated the text throughout to reflect the substantial developments that have taken place in the field in recent years. New studies have been incorporated as examples and there is more material on work in L2 phonology and lexis, as well as syntax. The evaluation sections in each chapter have been expanded and generally the book is rebalanced in favour of newer material. The first edition quickly established itself as the textbook of choice for students new to second language learning. The updates and revisions in this new edition ensure that the book remains as fresh, engaging and useful as the day it was first published.

    Review quote
    "Libraries that own the first edition of this volume will want to replace it with this updated version, which provides a detailed, comprehensive overview for those beginning to study second-language acquisition. Recommended."--ChoiceReview for a previous edition: "SLA theories are presented by Mitchell and Myles in a clear and engaging style. ... A great advantage of this text over others is that it reviews both connectionism and sociocultural theory, two newcomers in the field of SLA which are no doubt bound to figure very prominently in the future."--Second Language Research
