Brown, D. (1998). Principles of Language Learning and Teaching. New York: Prentice-Hall Regents.

This text provides a comprehensive, up-to-date analysis of theories, research, and practice in foreign and second language learning. It also includes completely new end-of-chapter vignettes on classroom applications as well as discussion questions and case studies for analysis. Brown couches each discussion in an overall view of the behaviorist / cognitivist debate and refers to these larger theories regularly.
