The fourth edition includes discussion of constructivist approaches to SLA; emotional intelligence; strategies-based instruction; language policy and politics; cross-linguistic influence; models of SLA; the critical period hypothesis; language aptitude; the neurobiology of affect; intercultural communication; and form-focused instruction.
