Book Information

   

Title: Language Learners in Study Abroad Contexts
Edited By: Margaret A. DuFon
Eton Churchill
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

Key Features:
- Includes studies on learners in a variety of contexts that investigate
the study abroad experience through diverse theoretical frameworks
- Useful for graduate students and advanced researchers investigating
second language acquisition and socialisation
- Also useful for educators involved in study abroad programs

Summary:
Examining the overseas experience of language learners in diverse contexts
through a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches, studies in
this volume look at the acquisition of language use, socialization
processes, learner motivation, identity and learning strategies. In this
way, the volume offers a privileged window into learner experiences abroad
while addressing current concerns central to second language acquisition.

Review:
"Illustrating diverse approaches to the study of language socialization and
acquisition, this volume will surely become a key reference for applied
linguistics research on education abroad, the most celebrated and least
understood among environments for language learning."
