Examines the need for advanced levels of language learning from socio-cultural and linguistic perspectives. This book examines the acquisition of advanced levels of ability in 3 parts: theoretical; descriptive; and instructional. It is of interest to academics researching systemic functional linguistics, and second language acquisition.

It moves beyond the traditional constraints of second language acquisition research by linking systemic functional linguistics and sociocultural theory. The contributors draw primarily on the work of Halliday, Vygotsky and Bakhtin, as well as empirical data from the language classroom, to suggest practical applications towards advanced literacy and linguistic competence."Advanced Language Learning" will be of interest to academics researching systemic functional linguistics, second language acquisition and applied linguistics.
