What are some insightful well-written books or articles, academic or otherwise, on the mechanics of how we learn second-languages and anything about the application of linguistics to learning languages?

I am both an intermediate Spanish learner and an English teacher here in Mexico City. Despite this, or because of this, I feel my next-to-non-existent knowledge of how exactly people learn languages is inadequate.
My knowledge of teaching and education comes from an M.A. in teaching English literature to high school students and my experiences here in Mexico. I t gets me by but I would like a more solid foundation.
