6. Description Abstract Issues in Second Language Teaching is a textbook written to help both novice and more experienced teachers reflect on topics related to second language learning and language teaching. It provides readers with a better understanding of the interface between second language learning theory and research and language teaching practices.

The main objective of this book is to develop and enhance theoretical and practical understanding of how teachers should approach the way they teach languages in the classroom. Readers are asked to reflect on the implications of second language learning research and theory on language teaching by providing an analysis of how the principles derived from research can be applied in the language classroom when it comes to issues such as teaching grammar, correcting errors, providing ‘good’ input, developing output activities and encouraging interaction between learners. This book does not support a particular methodology for language teaching, focusing instead on specific themes in relation to language teaching.

The main aim of the introduction is to present the reader with the main theoretical accounts in second language acquisition theory. A brief overview of the main theoretical positions in language acquisition is followed by a list of possible pedagogical implications which language instructors can take into consideration in their practices.
