Affect in Language Learning
The affective domain and the emotional factors which influence language learning have been of interest in the field of language teaching for a number of years. By proposing a holistic approach to the learning process, Affect in Language Learning takes the position that the language learning experience will be much more effective when both affect and cognition are considered. The eighteen chapters discuss issues such as memory, anxiety, self-esteem, facilitation, autonomy, classroom activities, and assessment from the perspective of affect. The book will be of interest to teachers-in-preparation, teachers, teacher educators, curriculum designers, programme administrators and researchers and to those second language teaching professionals who wish to improve language teaching through a greater awareness of the role affect plays.
- Gives broad coverage of affect in language learning.
- Demonstrates humanistic thinking applied to language teaching practice.
- Proposes an approach to language teaching which is concerned with both the thinking and feeling sides of learners.
