This course introduces basic theories of language learning, with a primary focus on English as a second language learning. We will examine linguistic, psychological, and sociocultural factors that influence language learning success with relevant language-learning research. The overall objectives of this course are to understand the basic mechanisms and phenomena of second language learning and to apply that understanding to teaching.
