  •  Hulin Ren    


In this paper, a survey of certain techniques applied in the study of second language (L2) learning is presented. In this context, four types of techniques with reference to two critical questions in investigating instructional learning process of L2 sentences are described and commented: (1) how do individual L2 learners’ differences process sentences in real time?; (2) what is the decisive factor in L2 learners’ sentence processing? The aim is to show how comprehensive techniques that capture real-time sentence processing of L2 learners with instruction can be applied to elucidate such questions, with the purpose to suggest best suited techniques to particular research topics in exploring learners’ nature of instructional L2 sentence processing.
