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

Summary:Examining the overseas experience of language learners in diverse contextsthrough a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches, studies inthis volume look at the acquisition of language use, socializationprocesses, learner motivation, identity and learning strategies. In thisway, the volume offers a privileged window into learner experiences abroadwhile addressing current concerns central to second language acquisition.
