Abstract:

This volume is a collection of nine original papers exploring dimensions of
individual difference in language learning from narrative and biographical
perspectives. Topics covered include motivation, emotion, age, learning
strategies and beliefs, identity and the influence of classroom, distance
and self-instructional settings. The authors use a variety of research
methods to investigate learners' experiences of these aspects of the
learning process. Among the countries represented in the research are
Australia, Bahrain, China, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, New Zealand, Peru, the
United Kingdom and the United States. The studies will be of interest to
teachers, teachers-in-preparation, teacher educators and researchers.
