This collection of essays builds on the authors’ previous work and aims to open an additional branch of research in processing instruction, and to stimulate further research. This is the first collection of studies that empirically addresses the role that individual differences, such as age, gender, and native language background, might play in the results generated by processing instruction.
"Individual Differences and Processing Instruction makes a significant contribution to L2 research on processing instruction by carefully examining the role of individual differences on results generated by this pedagogical intervention. A clear strength of the volume is its breadth in relation to the range of individual variables that are investigated, the linguistic forms and structures that are included and the number of first and second languages that are examined. A must-read for researchers and students interested in instructed second language acquisition in general and processing instruction in particular.'
