The foreign language learning process
Pickett presents the invitation letter he sent to around 30 friends and colleagues – ‘a far-flung assortment of linguists’, though mostly male, British, and in the 30 to 50 age range – to ask for their thoughts on their own experiences in language learning. The report provides insights into how a rather atypical sample of highly educated and cosmopolitan adult learners go about the language learning task, on the basis of the introspective accounts received. Finally, Steven McDonough of Essex University contributes a chapter in which he relates the report to other, existing and future, research.
