Currents in Language Learning provides programmatic state-of-the-art overviews of current issues in the language sciences and their applications in first, second, and bi/multilingual language acquisition in naturalistic and tutored contexts. It brings together disciplinary perspectives from linguistics, psychology, education, anthropology, sociology, cognitive science, and neuroscience. In this first issue of Currents in Language Learning, leading applied linguists review their particular specialisms so to develop the research agendas in areas including: progress and relevance in second language acquisition (Ortega), Usage-Based Linguistics (Ellis, O'Donnell, and Römer), age effects in language learning (DeKeyser), second language pragmatics (Bardovi-Harlig), vocabulary knowledge (Jarvis), transfer of learning in second language instruction (Larsen-Freeman), language, literacy, and culture (Cumming), academic language development in schools (Schleppegrell), Practice Theory (Young and Astarita), and evolutionary perspectives on language (Schumann).
