This much needed book will be an excellent text for courses in Language Acquisition within second language teacher education programs. There is a wealth of new knowledge, new vocabulary, and new perspectives which not only contribute to specialized aspects of teacher training but will enrich students' general education as well -- Patsy Lightbrown, Professor of Applied Linguistics Vivian Cook aims to provide a book which is not too academic, and which is relevant to the classroom teacher; he has succeeded admirably. And although intended for teachers, this book should also prove interesting to anyone who has ever themselves attempted to learn a foreign language. -- Language International ...a very valuable text for foreign language teachers and those in training and should feature...on reading lists of initial teacher education courses. -- Language Learning Journal -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


The fourth edition of this classic textbook has been revised to reflect recent developments in language teaching and learning yet retains the basic structure and approach so popular with its readers. Teaching and learning content has been updated, particularly taking into account the rise of task-based learning, Conversational Analysis and social models of second language acquisition, changes in national syllabuses and examinations and the increasing controversy over the role of the native speaker target. Each chapter has been revised to stand alone, enabling the text to be taught and studied out of sequence if preferred. A set of focussing questions has also been added to each and further reading sections have been updated. In addition, icons appear throughout the text signalling where extra information - summaries, data, lecture notes, test batteries and more - can be found on the author's accompanying website, Second Language Learning and Language Teaching remains the essential textbook for all student teachers of modern languages and TESOL as well as applied linguistics.

Bridging the gap between theory and practice 6. September 2004
Von Marco Polo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Teachers often complain that research results and theories do not help them much when it comes to choosing materials or deciding on activities: the nuts and bolts of teaching in other words. On the other hand, researchers as well as some teachers complain that teachers all too often ignore research findings and base their teaching on their own unexamined and sometimes unfounded ideas and beliefs.
Well, here is a book that helps bridge the gap between second language acquisition research and teaching practice. Vivian Cook (a reader at the University of Essex in the UK for many years, he will move to Newcastle University in October 2004) provides here an overview of some of the most salient points from second language acquisition research and links them with teaching practice by examining samples from published EFL/ESL textbooks (50 of them, all indexed) from around the world.
This is a book for practising or trainee EFL/ESL teachers. There is frequent reference to other languages (for language awareness) and to a variety of research on different ethnic groups of learners. While the book is obviously somewhat technical, given its intended readership, each section is preceded by a mini glossary and discussion questions.
Cook ranges widely. There are sections or chapters on: learning and teaching different types of grammar; writing, spelling and vocabulary; individual factors that affect learning (sex, age, motivation, cognitive and learning styles); on pronunciation; on the goals of language teaching, which includes a look at national educational objectives in different countries; on models of L2 learning (the input theory, Universal Grammar, communicative models, audio-lingual method, etc).
I enjoyed Cook's dry wit and his personal comments on some of the research findings and teaching methods he describes. For instance, on the question of L2 users versus native speakers (Ch 7), he points out: "Teachers should be clear in their minds that they are usually teaching people how to use two languages, not how to use one in isolation....The aim is not to produce L2 speakers who can only use the language when speaking with each other. Myhill (1990), for instance, points out that English materials for Aboriginals in Australia, such as 'Tracks' (Northern Territory, 1979), reflect their own lifestyle rather than that of the English-speaking community: what's the point in them speaking to each other in English? Nor should the aim be to produce imitation native speakers, except perhaps for trainee spies."
Cook provides a British perspective, often lacking in EFL/ESL books (such as Lightbown and Spada's "How Language are Learned"). The overview of methods includes "British mainstream EFL".
An informative and stimulating book, particularly for teaches who have been away from theory or research for a while.

I think that the author instead of having a strong own view; she reviews the others' theories about the subject. So we can say that she quotes the most updated studies about it. The book may be useful for a bibliography research but not to get a general idea about the topic

No one teaching or learning method... so read and thnk! 26. März 2005
Von Anonymous - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I have noted in the margins - Debate, Problem, Practical, Interesting, Challenge, A vs B, Steps, Reasons and Solution many times throughout the book. She presents no one definitive answer but many comprehensive answers and provides a myriad of possibilities - the thinking and choice is up to you. This quote says it all...

"One piece of research shows that something is beneficial: a second peice of research following up on the same research shows that it is harmful. Presumably this conflict demonstrates the complexity of the learning process and the varieties of situations in which L2 learning occurs. But this is slender consolation to teachers, who want a straight answer." (Cook p.137)

This is for the comparative, analytical and practical teacher who wants insight into answering the questions - perfect.
