Title: Towards an Understanding of Language Learner Self-Concept
Written By: Sarah Mercer
URL: http://www.springer.com/education+%26+language/book/978-90-481-9568-8?changeHeader
Series Title: Educational Linguistics
Description:

This book contributes to our growing understanding of the nature and
development of language learner self-concept. It assesses the relevant
literature in the disciplines of psychology and applied linguistics and
describes in-depth, qualitative research examining the self-concepts of
tertiary-level EFL learners. Although researchers in applied linguistics and
SLA have recognized the importance of self-constructs, there remains little
empirical work in the context of foreign language learning that focuses
exclusively and at length on this central psychological construct. The content
of this monograph draws on interdisciplinary sources, with input from
psychology and applied linguistics. It will appeal to students and researchers
interested in language-learner psychology as well as self-related constructs in
general. The text provides insights into how learners view themselves, and
how these self-beliefs can develop and affect the progress of an individual’s
language learning.
