Our aim is to offer a broad introduction to the field of French Second Language Acquisition (SLA), by providing both overview articles introducing the field (Myles) and assessing its achievements (Towell), and by providing in depth articles adopting specific theoretical approaches in order to study French SLA. We are not aiming to be comprehensive in our choice of theoretical approaches. Rather, we have chosen to include those which have been most significant in furthering our understanding of French SLA. Some influential approaches, such as e.g. Connectionism, Processability Theory, or Input Processing, have not been applied to the study of French to any great extent and are therefore not represented in this volume. Similarly, the field has tended to concentrate primarily on the acquisition of syntax and morphology, and this imbalance is reflected here too.
