Abstract:

What does learning a language involve? Obviously, a rapid and definitive
answer cannot be provided for this question since the aspects and
situations affecting language learning are many and varied. From the role
of culture to the use of new technologies in foreign language learning,
this work aims to offer its readers some of the current research being
carried out in different areas relevant to the topic.

A long developing project has become reality thanks to the work of several
researchers who are also experienced teaching professionals. In this sense,
it is worth mentioning that most chapters of the book relate to different
aspects of language learning within the classroom context which has
resulted in realistic approaches to foreign language learning that can be
of great help to those involved and/or interested in this field.
Moreover, the clear division into sections allows readers to make their
choice on how to proceed with the reading of the book depending on their
thematic interests. Five sections make up this practical work: culture and
language learning, human resources in language learning, language learning
strategies, language learning software and language learning web resources.
