Title: Individual Learner Differences in SLA
Edited By: Janusz Arabski
Adam Wojtaszek
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847694348
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

Beginning from the conflict between individual learner differences and the
institutionalized, often inflexible character of formal language instruction,
Individual Learner Differences in SLA addresses the fact that despite this
apparent conflict, ultimate success in learning a language is widespread.
Starting with theoretically-based chapters, the book follows the thread of learner
differences through sections devoted to learner autonomy; differentiated
application of learning strategies; diagnostic studies of experienced learners’
management of the learning process; and reports on phonological attainment
and development of language skills. Rather than providing an overview of all
individual variables, the book reveals how some of them shape and affect the
processes of language acquisition and use in particular settings.
