He describes the most important studies and ideas about first language acquisition, and how these have influenced and developed into studies of second language acquisition. He considers the background of language theories which were current before the present interest in acquisition research, and looks at factors such as learners' errors, whether learners are predisposed to acquire language in certain sequences, why some people are apparently more successful at learning languages than others, and how learners make use of their new language to communicate. The use of clear examples, the careful explanation and balanced commentary on the research enable the reader to evaluate the evidence and consider the relevance of work in this field to the day to day concerns of teaching and learning languages. In Foreign and Second Language Learning, William Littlewood surveys recent research into how people acquire languages and considers its relevance for language teaching.

|Linguistic Minority Children' s Heritage Language Learning and Identity Struggle Raising Ambi-lingual Children. Книга по Требованию Hyu-Yong P. |
The author highlights that the Korean American children' s (ethnolinguistic) identity is ruptured by the domination of host language (i. e. , English); furthermore, their hybrid identity is attributed to their parents’ ambition for bilingual learning for academic success and bicultural adaptation to both distinct societies, Korea and the U. S. The author also discusses many concurrent issues associated with the ambitious project for bilingualism: i) the dominance of English in the era of globalization, ii) the English-learning fever in Korea; and iii) ideolization and reproduction of social discourses in school in terms of pedagogic discourse. The discussions of this book may help immigrant parents and ESL (English as a Second Language) educators to understand why immigrant children struggle in their identity formation and why it is important to deal with the issues of linguistic imperialism and ecology of language. In this book, the author examines the issues of the unequal power relationship between languages and the consequent heritage language loss and identity struggle, especially in the case of Korean linguistic minority children (LMC) in the United States.
