"This is an excellent collection of writings on traditional and developing areas of study in second-language acquisition learning and teaching. Summing Up: Essential." - CHOICE
"The editors, Susan M. Gass and Alison Mackey, have done a sterling job with this Handbook. The biggest names and rising stars in the fields of second language teaching and language learning have contributed to this "magnum opus". The chapters share a common structure and are highly accessible. I finished most chapters with a sudden ardent desire to plunge into that area and start working on the many unsolved questions in SLA." - Jean-Marc Dewaele, Birkbeck, University of London, UK
"Focusing specifically on second language learning, the 35 chapters that constitute this volume offer fundamental information about both traditional as well as emerging topics in SLA research." - Studies in Second Language Acquisition
"Case studies are presented in each case which further help the reader grasp a better understanding of the theoretical frameworks and claims. Moreover, the importance of this volume lies on the sections which bridge the gap between theory and its application to second language classroom. Possible future research and directions are also of great value." - Alexandra Galani, University of Ioannina
