This text explores a wide range of issues that influence how a person learns a second language. By using P.L.A.C.E. as an acronym, standing for People, Language, Attention, Cognition, and Emotion, the text offers an accessible way to examine both the practical and theoretical sides of each issue.


Examines the issues of learning language from three distinct perspectives: Teachers' Voices, which are authentic accounts of teachers' experiences; Frameworks, which are comprehensive discussions of theoretical issues; and Investigations, which are inquiry-based activities.
