Second Language Acquisition

Second language acquisition (SLA) is designed to explore the underlying developmental process of learning a second language for non-native speakers of English. The study of SLA is strongly interdisciplinary. It includes linguistic theory, behavioral psychology and cognitive research. The theoretical and methodological basis of SLA will be implemented into the language classroom and studied with the goal of facilitating successful learning of a second language. Areas of study include comprehensible input, information processing and error analysis. The process of language acquisition will be considered in terms of individual differences and the internal and external factors that allow for learners to process input and produce comprehensible output. Overall, the theoretical basis of SLA will be applied to practical teaching methods for various language classrooms.
