Taken from a mixed-method study focused on exploring uses of cognitive linguistics in L2 classrooms (Jacobsen, 2012), this paper investigates learners’ perceptions on cognitive linguistic instruction of English conditionals. The findings explore ways to make the adaptation of cognitive linguistic theory to practice most successful and meaningful for language learners.
