Description:

Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics is a series of introductory level textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, primarily designed for those beginning postgraduate studies, or taking an introductory MA course as well as advanced undergraduates. Titles in the series are also ideal for language professionals returning to academic study.The books take an innovative 'practice to theory' approach, with a 'back-to-front' structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include a glossary of key terms, and discussion questions. In this book, Ellis and Shintani examine how theory and research relating to second language acquisition can inform language pedagogy. The authors cover the different aspects of language pedagogy that SLA can address, identify problems related to these, and discuss possible solutions to these problems through reference to SLA theory and research. Including a glossary of key terms and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter, and assuming no prior knowledge of Second Language Acquisition, this is the ideal text for all students studying SLA in advanced undergraduate and postgraduate/graduate Applied Linguistics and TESOL courses.
