About the book

Second Language Acquisition-Learning Theories and Recent Approaches will aim to present the process of learning an additional language apart from one’s native language. The process of understanding, writing, and speaking another language with fluency involves complex intellectual and emotional responses as well as continuous information processing abilities. A variety of perspectives is needed for learning to take place. Many factors are involved, both internal and external, that determine why some learn a second language at a faster rate than another. With an internal or external focus of attention, various linguistic techniques have explored the basic questions about SLA. With the ability to covey and structure information in a second language, there is a need for what is being learned to be viewed from a variety of perspectives. The focus on continuous natural UG capability for language learning versus communicative processing requirements differs among viewpoints on how SLA develops.

This book intends to provide readers with language acquisition, language comprehension, language development, language processing, and psychological and social variables, which have been largely excluded by purely language approaches.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jelena Vrdoljak

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
