The aim of this coursebook is to present and explain the most prominent theories of first and second language acquisition as well as the most important methods and approaches that have guided language teachers since the beginning of language teaching and learning. The coursebook is divided into four parts. The first part is devoted to the theories of first and second language acquisition and includes discussions of the Behaviourist Theory, the Innatist Theory, the Cognitive Theory, the Interactionist Theory, and the Creative Construction Theory, their main proponents and their strengths and weaknesses. The second part includes the early language teaching methods such as the Grammar-Translation Method, the Direct Method and the Audiolingual Method. The third part focuses on the alternative methods, or the so-called designer methods, including Asher’s Total Physical Response, Gattegno’s The Silent Way, Lozanov’s Suggestopedia, and Curran’s Community Language Learning. The fourth part is devoted to the most recent methods and approaches that fall under the term Communicative Approaches which include Communicative Language Teaching, Task-Based Language Teaching, The Natural Approach and Cooperative Language Learning.
