This volume is a collection of nine original papers exploring dimensions of individual difference in language learning from narrative and biographical perspectives.
This book focusses on language learners as people, not as abstract individuals. By listening to the voices of the learners themselves and setting them in the context of their personal and social lives it advances our understanding of the enormous tasks faced by second and foreign language learners. It contains new and previously unpublished research which fills a gap in the existing literature. It also demonstrates how first-person accounts of langauge learning can be used practically both inside and outside the classroom.
