The book focuses on investigating pragmatic learning, teaching and testing in foreign language contexts. The volume brings together research thatinvestigates these three areas in different formal language learning settings. The number and variety of languages involved both as the first language (e.g. English, Finnish, Iranian, Spanish, Japanese) as well as the target foreign language (e.g. English, French, German, Indonesian, Korean, Spanish) makes the volume specially attractive for language educators in different sociocultural foreign language contexts. Additionally, the different approaches adopted by the researchers participating in this volume, such as information processing, sociocultural, language socialization, computer-mediated or conversation analysis should be of interest to graduate students and researchers working in the area of second language acquisition.

Review:

This book is a rich source of knowledge and inspiration for beginner and more advanced researchers, contributes to the development of the multilingual field of interlanguage pragmatics and provides valuable pedagogical implications for language teachers in the foreign language classroom. --Anna Ni egorodcew, Professor in Applied Linguistics, English Department, Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland

Adopting a range of theoretical perspectives and focusing on a variety of learning contexts and approaches to learning, this timely collection of articles represents a significant contribution to the growing body of literature on the teaching of pragmatics in the foreign language context. It is essential reading for interlanguage pragmaticists. --Dr. Anne Barron, Institut für Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Keltologie, Universität Bonn, Germany.
