By any definition, Michael Long was a giant in the field of second language acquisition (SLA). He was one of the very few who could truly wed language learning and language teaching which he did in a seamless fashion. His impact is far-reaching and envelops a number of different areas as we will… read more
In this article we investigated the learner characteristics of 127 Spanish language learners who achieved “advanced” in at least one tested skill (speaking, reading, or listening). We compared their profiles with case-control-matched non-advanced peers. All students took a background survey on… read more
Previous research has shown that preservice instructors focus less on language while completing dyadic language learning tasks (Polio, Gass, & Chapin, 2006) and give less feedback than experienced instructors in a classroom setting (Mackey, Polio, & McDonough, 2004). Although most language teacher… read more

The field has gradually come to understand SLA through multiple data types, so that the current view is that data are not appropriate or… read more
