The first two editions of Second Language Learning Theories were world wide best sellers, admired for their ability to show students interested in becoming language teachers the relevance of second language learning research and theory. This third edition offers a fuller discussion of language teaching and, in particular, highlights some of the places where research contradicts standard language teaching beliefs by analyzing some standard TEFL handbooks and coursebooks from different countries. The broad framework and approach of the successful second edition have been maintained in addition to extensive updating and revision.
