BOOK REVIEW: Essentials of SLA for L2 Teachers: A Transdisciplinary Framework

Document Type : Book Review


Languages and Linguistics Center, Sharif University of Technology


The writer capitalizes on the notion of a transdisciplinary approach to SLA. In chapter one, Introduction, the writer elaborates on eight themes on which the entire book rests. The book comes into nine chapters, each chapter corresponding to a theme save chapter one. Where possible, the writer has made an endeavor to embellish different concepts with examples, often real life ones. Furthermore, the book is embroidered with a ‘pedagogical activities’ section which I think is the linchpin of the book.
