Lessons from Good Language Learners Paperback

Edited by Carol Griffiths

Part of the Cambridge Language Teaching Library series


This edited collection provides a comprehensive overview of the area of sucessful language learning strategies and reviews the literature and research on this subject to date.

The book provides a reference base, addresses theoretical issues and considers pedagogical implications.

It identifies gaps in our current understanding and suggests useful research initiatives and it considers how all of this relates to successful language learning by unique individuals in a variety of situations. The book is divided into 2 sections: the first deals with learner variables and has chapters on such topics as age, culture, motivation, personality and aptitude.

The second covers learning variables such as vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, reading and listening.

The writers include many well-established names such as Anna Chamot, Paul Nation and Andrew Cohen as well as some of the best representatives of the new generation of applied linguists.
