Reviews

From the reviews:

"The goal of this book is to inform second language instructors and researchers of an alternative approach to SLT. For researchers intrigued by the brain-based learning approach, this book provides a simulating overview of this novel approach in learning and acquiring a second language. … This book is therefore highly recommended for language instructors who are passionate about applying the brain-based learning approach. For those interested in further reading in this exciting area … the volume provides an extensive, 28-page general bibliography … ." (Cheryl Choe, Korea TESOL Journal, Vol. 7 (1), 2004)
