Great Minds in Language Education 2022 with Scott Thornbury


The core text for this reading-and-discussion course is Alternative Approaches to Second Language Acquisition. The book is a collection of six chapters, each detailing an ‘alternative’ approach to the study of SLA. To quote from the book’s blurb: All six approaches … are described according to the same set of six headings, allowing for direct comparison across approaches.

Each of the eight sessions of the course will focus on one chapter, and we will work together to unpack the main tenets of each theory, and their possible applications to the field of second language instruction.

Join Scott in September for a deep dive into second language acquisition.
