Description de l'ouvrage

2 février 1998 Applied Linguistics and Language Study
Strategies in Learning and Using a Second Language explores the topic of learner strategies - the ways in which language learners engage with the process of learning and communicating in a new language.
The introduction to the book sets out the main theoretical issues, distinguishing language learning from language use strategies, and describing the main research methods for their investigation. The author presents innovative research linking the use of task-specific strategies with language performance. The volume then presents empirical research investigating the languages multilinguals select for their verbalized thoughts during language learning and language use. Finally, the author presents empirical research focusing on the strategies learners use in language test-taking contexts.

The volume is intended primarily for language teachers and researchers, as well as for administrators of second language programs. It is also highly suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students of applied linguistics and will be of interest to foreign language students, stimulating them to reflect on their strategies for learning and using a second language. The chapters present questions and raise areas for further discussion and study, making the book suitable for those new to the field. At the same time, the provision of important new research will appeal to those with more advanced knowledge in the field.

Revue de presse

"The combined overview of theoretical and practical aspects of strategy use is given an additional strength by the excellent surveys of recent literature, the discussion questions at the end of every chapter, and the enlightening examples and appendices. Andrew Cohen has written a book which will no doubt prove useful to researchers, language teachers and students alike." The Clarion

Quatrième de couverture

Strategies in Learning and Using a Second Language examines what it takes to achieve long-term success in languages beyond the first language. Distinguishing language learning from language-use strategies, Andrew D. Cohen disentangles a morass of terminology to help the reader see what language strategies are and how they can enhance performance. Particular areas of research examined in the book include:

-          links between the use of task-specific strategies and language performance

-          how multilinguals verbalise their thoughts during language learning and use

strategies that learners use in test-taking contexts


In this fully revised and substantially rewritten second edition, every chapter has been reworked, with material either updated or replaced. Entirely new material has also been developed based on examples of specific strategies supplied by actual learners, mostly drawn from a website featuring these strategies in the learning of Spanish grammar.


Strategies in Learning and Using a Second language will be an invaluable resource for language teachers and researchers, as well as for administrators of second language programmes and for students of applied linguistics.


Andrew D. Cohen is a professor in phased retirement with the Program in Second Language Studies at the University of Minnesota. He has conducted research on language learner strategies for over 35 years and has himself studied 11 languages beyond his native English. His recent books include Language Learner Strategies (co-edited with Ernesto Macaro, 2007) and Teaching and Learning Pragmatics (co-authored with Noriko Ishihara, 2010).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Nice Synthesis of Second Language Learners Strategies 31 décembre 1999
Par Posen Liao - Publié sur Amazon.com
Over the past several years, there has been a marked shift in the focus of foreign language instruction. Students are being encouraged to ¡§learn how to learn¡ and ¡§how to use¡ a foreign language. More and more foreign language educators recognize that effective learning and use strategies can enhance students¡ efforts to reach their language goals. Though it is promising to see that the study of language learning and use strategies continues to receive increased attention, there is still little literature available nowadays. Fortunately, in his latest book, Andrew D. Cohen offers a very nice synthesis of issues relating to language learner strategies.
The book is divided into five main sections: (a) discussion of terminology describing second language (L2) learning and use strategies; (b) a review of research methods available for assessing L2 strategies; (c) strategy training and the effects of strategies-based instruction; (d) strategies of choosing the language of thought for cognitive processing; (e) strategy use in testing situations.
Overall, the author has aimed at a balance between theory, research and practical pedagogical implications, but one of the most positive aspects of the book is that it has devoted extensive time to discussions of terminology and research methods. Since L2 learning and use strategies are generally internal mental processes, it is quite a challenge to design a study that can be sure of collecting adequate data on learners¡ strategy use. I especially like the way that Cohen presents an in-depth analysis of six different approaches to assessing language learner strategies: learning strategy interviews and written questionnaires, observation, verbal report, diaries and dialog journals, recollective studies, and computer tracking. His thorough discussion of research methods will certainly help prospective researchers to determine their research topics and choose the means of investigation, and eventually benefit the fledgling field of language learning strategies. This book will also be particularly useful for teachers who want to be of greater support to their students in their learning efforts. The position Cohen has taken is that ¡§strategies-based instruction provides the most efficient way for learner awareness to be heightened¡ (p.265). A variety of approaches to provide student-directed language learning and use strategy instruction as well as the possible roles that the teacher can play are discussed. A research project on the effects of strategies-based instruction conducted at the University of Minnesota is also reported. Nonetheless, the implications for teaching strategies in the classroom are generally written in the form of principles or suggestions. Therefore, this book may not meet the needs of teachers who are searching for classroom-ready strategies-based instruction activities, exercises, and curriculum. It is also interesting to note that Cohen addresses two more specialized and often neglected areas in strategy use: strategies for choosing the language of thought and test-taking strategies. This book should provide a foundation for researchers to further explore such studies.
In summary, this book creates a fine introduction to the field of L2 learning and use strategies. It is highly recommended for both researches and teachers of second and foreign language programs.
