Introduction to Second Language Acquisition

Introduces students to the basic theories of how humans learn languages. A basis in first language acquisition learning will be built on theories posited by Skinner, Piaget, Chomsky, and Vygotsky. These theories then lead to an examination and understanding of how learners acquire second languages, including elements of the first and second languages that influence one another.
