MEDIA REVIEWS

'The book not only presents a very comprehensive discussion of current research in the area of childhood second language learning but also generates insights into current debates on the relationship between research and classroom practice.' - Harry Kuchah, IAFTEFL Children and Teenagers' Magazine

'...this book succeeds extremely well in achieving its aims...the book as a whole contains a clear, confident, and consistent authorial voice...I feel this book breaks new ground and I recommend it to anyone interested in finding out more about what is known and what still needs to be known about how children learn an L2.' - ELT

'Children Learning Second Languages is a recent addition to a Plagrave Macmillan series that aims to examine the relationship between research and classroom practice... I feel that this book is likely to appeal mostly to MA students and researchers with no or reduced teaching loads and access to guidance from staff on formal academic study programmes... It provides an informed overview of language learning processes and links research and pedagogical considrations over a vast range of contexts and ages wih considerable flair and aplomb.' Simon Smith, - ELT
