Abstract

This book aims to provide an overview of current theory and research in the field of psychology in foreign language learning by bringing together a range of psychological constructs in a single volume. Each chapter focuses on a different psychological construct written by a specialist in the field. Each presents an outline of current thinking in the area, drawing on insights from educational psychology, a summary of research in the field, and an example of current research carried out by the author(s). The book also attempts to draw together the interconnections between the different strands of research reviewed in the chapters and in doing so to offer a picture of current thinking and directions for further research in the field.
