ClICK HERE TO ORDER
Research Talks is a collection of the answers that the field of second language acquisition (SLA) has to offer teachers. There are 150+ quotes divided into 30 weeks about language learning and language teaching from well-known publications and leading researchers from the field of SLA. Every day of the week contains a quote from a different researcher and is about a different topic (e.g., input, output, grammar, communication, teaching principles). As will become apparent, there is a general consensus on a lot of the aspects of language development and pedagogical practice, even among advocates of different theoretical perspectives. Accompanied by comments that provide further explanation and ideas for reflection, and culminating in essays that synthesize how to acquire and how to teach languages, this book is an indispensable resource for teachers. Read straight through and/or read and reflect on one quote per school day, providing you with daily support and inspiration to align language teaching with language science.
