Title: Strategies in Learning and Using a Second Language
Written By: Andrew D Cohen
Description:

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 and strategies that
learners use in test-taking contexts.
