Abstract:

Language plays an essential role in how we portray our personalities.
Through social interaction, others develop a picture of us based on our
linguistic cues. However, when we interact in a foreign language and in a
new country, limitations in linguistic and cultural knowledge can make
self-presentation a more difficult task. This book explores the problems
faced by language students embarking on 'study abroad' programmes, spending
time in a foreign country and having to interact - and express their
personalities - in a second language. Drawing on her extensive work with
students, Valerie Pellegrino Aveni explores the factors that complicate
self-presentation and the strategies students use for overcoming these,
looking in particular at issues of anxiety, control, age, gender,
risk-taking and self-esteem. Offering rich insights into the study abroad
experience, this book will be an invaluable resource for professionals in
second language acquisition, and for teachers and students preparing for
study abroad.
