Product Description


“Language teaching research and language pedagogy are complex and dynamic topics with a rich research tradition. Ellis succeeds in this volume in synthesizing a wide body of research … providing valuable information about language teaching, learning, and research. Both language teachers and researchers can benefit from this informative volume … The book has several strengths [offering] a holistic updated picture of diverse topics in the field … Insights and suggestions are provided throughout to make research findings into practical technical knowledge for language teachers.” Linguist List (29th October, 2013)

“This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of L2 classroom research covering a wide range of issues in SLA and language education. There are a number of useful tables and figures that present concise syntheses of complex issues. Although the volume addresses little about the development of specific language skills, it should be an essential read for teachers and researchers who wish to browse the major findings of empirical studies that inform language classroom practice.”  (Studies in Second Language Acquisition, 1 August 2013)

“The discussion of each study is critical but fair, and in explaining the methodological limitations of each study, Ellis provides readers with numerous ideas for how they could contribute to language teaching research in the future.”  (The Modern Language Journal, 22 August 2013)


"Rod Ellis synthesizes an extensive body of classroom research through cognitive-interactionist and sociocultural perspectives in ways that promise to spark constructive debate about possibilities for both pedagogy and research." – Roy Lyster, McGill University

"This book provides an excellent, state of the art review of all the hot topics in today's second language classroom research – it's well-written, highly accessible and comprehensive." – Alison Mackey, Georgetown University
