Credits: 3

This course will offer students a survey of the primary concepts and phenomena that relate to the study of Second Language Acquisition (SLA) where second has reference to languages acquired after the first, or native, language. This course will provide a cursory look at a number of linguistic, psycholinguistic, and sociolinguistic issues at the heart of second language learning, as well as an overview of the complex processes and mechanisms that drive that learning. However, findings from SLA research may inform practices in second and foreign language education and, thus, will be included in class discussions when appropriate.
