Perspectives on Individual Characteristics and Foreign Language Education
Edited by Wai Meng Chan, Kwee Nyet Chin, Sunil Bhatt, and Izumi
Published by de Gruyter
Overview: Learner characteristics have been at the center of second language acquisition and foreign language education research in response to the puzzling questions: Why are there often large differences in second language (L2) learning achievement and why do many learners, though proficient first language speakers, not succeed in learning a L2? The papers in this book explore and challenge the three key factors in individual difference research: language aptitude, language learning strategies and motivation.
