Review of Randall, Mick (2007) Memory, Psychology and Second Language Learning. Language Learning and Language Teaching, Volume 19.
Mick Randall reviews work from psychology and linguistics on language processing with the aim of drawing conclusions for second language learning. Based on his experiences as a language teacher with students at elementary and intermediate level and in less resourced contexts, he tries to find evidence for the effectiveness of more traditional learning and teaching strategies next to the communicative approach (o.c. vii-viii).
