Using numbers and research methods in your studies can be a little daunting at first. This book gives you straightforward guidance and no-nonsense advice on using, analysing and interpreting statistics and methodologies in empirical work. Each topic is introduced by an activity to help stimulate thought, and this is followed by a full explanation and exercises.

Essential Statistics for Applied Linguistics:
– explores different types of research and explains how to choose a methodology
– gives clear explanations of statistical and mathematical terms
– builds confidence and skills through hands-on exercises, examples and 'how-to' sections
– offers online learning resources, including demonstrations with real data to be used with the software package SPSS

Assuming no previous knowledge of methodology and statistics, this book will help you to acquire and strengthen your understanding, practice what you have learnt and feel comfortable with applying this new expertise to your own work.
