Second Language Acquisition Myths

Applying Second Language Research to Classroom Teaching

This volume was conceived as a first book in SLA for advanced undergraduate or introductory master’s courses that include education majors, foreign language education majors, and English majors. It’s also an excellent resource for practicing teachers. Both the research and pedagogy in this book are based on the newest research in the field of second language acquisition. It is not the goal of this book to address every SLA theory or teach research methodology. It does however address the myths and questions that non-specialist teacher candidates have about language learning. Steven Brown is the co-author of the introductory applied linguistics textbook Understanding Language Structure, Interaction, and Variation textbook (and workbook). The myths challenged in this book are: § Children learn languages quickly and easily while adults are ineffective in comparison. § A true bilingual is someone who speaks two languages perfectly. § You can acquire a language simply through listening or reading. § Practice makes perfect. § Language students learn (and retain) what they are taught. § Language learners always benefit from correction. § Individual differences are a major, perhaps the major, factor in SLA. § Language acquisition is the individual acquisition of grammar.

Sinfully Cursed

Josef Kaviani is an average, everyday sort of guy. He works a desk job at a local college, with a manager that he can't stand; he lives in an apartment worth far less than he pays; he still has feelings for the girl who got away. Every Tuesday, he goes to his local mosque to pray; every Friday, he goes bowling with his friends. It's a comfortable routine, and it's almost enough to let Josef forget the dark, savage secret that he keeps from most of the world. Josef's halfway-normal life is torn apart by the nightmares of a past he has been trying to escape for years, and the implications of a future he's never wanted. Pulled between three factions, Josef will eventually have to make a life-shattering decision; a choice that will force him to face the truth of who, and what, he is. Before his secrets get him, and everyone he loves, killed.

Understanding Language Structure, Interaction, and Variation

An Introduction to Applied Linguistics and Sociolinguistics for Nonspecialists

Understanding Language Structure, Interaction, and Variation is an introduction to the study of language and applied linguistics for students who have had a minimum of exposure to the discipline of linguistics. Using clear, easy-to-understand explanations and examples, this text avoids the in-depth theoretical coverage found in texts written for those who specialize in linguistics or SLA. As a result, this book is perfect for students whose chosen fields require them to be acquainted with the ways language works--such as future teachers, psychologists, sociologists, and anthropologists--but who do not intend to become linguists. The text is also suitable for English or ESL/EFL teachers who need a reference volume about various aspects of language, particularly as it applies to teaching. Each chapter includes research projects and further readings. The third edition of Understanding Language Structure, Interaction, and Variation features a new design and reorganization. All content has been significantly revised and updated. Each chapter also debunks a common language myth and now incorporates exercises that, for prior editions, appeared in a supplementary workbook. Extra practice for students is available online, as is additional materials for teachers. (There is no workbook for the third edition.)
