About this book

Young people around the world are increasingly able to access English language media online for leisure purposes and interact with other users of English. This book examines the extent of these phenomena, their effect on language acquisition and their implications for the teaching of English in the 21st century.

About the authors

Geoffrey Sockett is Associate Professor of Applied Linguistics at Paris Descartes University in France. He has published articles and spoken at international conferences in the fields of second language acquisition and computer assisted language learning. The current focus of his research is how English may be learned informally through exposure to online media.

Reviews

“In an engaging, highly readable yet authoritative prose, Sockett describes how changes in technology have allowed for unprecedented out-of-classroom access to a wide-range of pop-culture, often resulting in personalized, English learning environments. … The online Informal Learning of English provides an excellent starting point for research on informal learning in today’s globalized online environment.” (Jason Cole, System, 2016)
