This is a completely revised and updated edition of this readable introduction to the study of language acquisition. By understanding how languages are learned, teachers will be more able to judge the merits of different teaching methodologies and textbooks, and make the most of the time they spend with learners. How Languages are Learned provides a clear introduction to the main theories of first and second language acquisition and, with the help of activities and questionnaires, discusses their practical implications for language teaching.

Traditional behaviourists believed that language learning is the result of imitation, practice, feedback on success, and habit formation. Children imitate the sounds and patterns which they hear around them and receive positive reinforcement (which could take the form of praise or just successful communication) for doing so. Thus encouraged by their environment, they continue to imitate and practise these sounds and patterns until they form 'habits' of correct language use. According to this view, the quality and the quantity of the language which the child hears, as well as the consistency of the reinforcement offered by others in the environment, should have an effect on the child's success in language learning.
Imitation and practice alone cannot explain some of the forms created by the children. They are not sentences that they heard from adults. Rather, children appear to pick out patterns and then generalize them to new contexts. They create forms or new uses of words until they finally figure out how the forms are used by adults. Their new sentences are usually comprehensible and often correct.
