“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)
