Grammar and the Advanced Learner Book Description:

How do we learn a second language? Is it necessary to study grammar or is it enough just to be exposed to and use the language we want to learn? Is the learning of a second language similar to or fundamentally different from first language learning? These questions are dealt with in Grammar and the Advanced Learner. The purpose of the book is to find out whether the old question of the usefulness of grammar study can be answered by current theories and research results in the field of second language acquisition. A study of a group of Swedish university students of English forms the basis of the discussion. Most research concerns earlier stages of learning and it is therefore interesting to consider the problems of advanced learners to whom some of the generally accepted theories may not be applicable. Not only the learning process but also teaching methods have received the attention of theorists and researchers. Some of their research on methods and their proposals for teaching grammar are presented and discussed. Can linguists supply answers to the questions that teachers are confronted with in their classrooms? Grammar and the Advanced Learner places the advanced learner in focus but it also deals with second language acquisition theories and research from a general perspective. It should therefore be of interest not only to teachers of advanced learners but also to those who teach at earlier stages, and to adult learners of foreign languages who are curious about their own learning process.
