    Materials about (English) language learning

    What older books about second language aquisition and particularly learning English language were written? When? Can you provide me with the names of them.

    Thank you in advance

    Re: Materials about (English) language learning

    How far back do you want to go? I have copies of;

    Jespersen, Otto (1904) How to Teach a Foreign Language, London: Allen & Unwin
    Sweey, Henry, (1899) The Practical Study of Languages, London: J M Dent & Sons

    Re: Materials about (English) language learning

    Wow, we can go even further...
    I suppose you have books about teaching. I would be interested rather in books designed for self-learning. Books that tells you how to learn English. BTW: It's not for me. I just want to know whether there is such a book, because there's a guy in the Czech Republic, claiming that he is one of the first Czech writers on the topic and since I do not like boasting a lot, I decided to find out how the situation was before he wrote his book in 1990. Thank you for your comment and looking forward to your answer.
