Once again, Second Language Vocabulary Acquisition by contains a contribution by Paul Nation, it isn't a third-party reference. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 05:29, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

I will try to get more content and independent sources. In any case, please USERFY in my user space if deletion is really wanted. I may recycle content for a coming Vocabulary acquisition article. Yug (talk) 10:56, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Small fixes[edit]

"the approach taken in the book is that a balanced language course should consist of four major strands: learning from comprehensible meaning-focused input, language-focused learning, meaning-focused input, and fluency development.

Can we go through a grammar polish?[edit]

Hi all, I'd like to go through and tighten up the sentences a bit and polish up some of the grammar. Is that ok?
