Abstract:

Research results over the past decades have consistently demonstrated that
a key reason why many second language learners fail--while some learners do
better with less effort--lies in various learner attributes such as
personality traits, motivation, or language aptitude. In psychology, these
attributes have traditionally been called "individual differences." The
scope of individual learner differences is broad--ranging from creativity
to learner styles and anxiety--yet there is no current, comprehensive, and
unified volume that provides an overview of the considerable amount of
research conducted on various language learner differences, until now.
