Title: Boys and Foreign Language Learning
Subtitle: Real Boys Don't Do Languages
Written By: Jo Carr
Anne Pauwels

Jo Carr and Anne Pauwels examine the continuing poor relationship between
boys and the study of foreign languages. Framed by discussion of gender
socialization, gendered curriculum practices and cultural narratives about
boys and schooling, the core of the book is constructed by boys themselves.
They talk about school, about themselves as learners, about teachers and
language classrooms. Their commentaries raise important issues for language
teachers and curriculum planners, but also for everyone involved in wider
conversations about boys, language, literacy and education.
