About the talk

Much research into language learning has concerned universal factors. However, for successful language learning, we need also to consider variables which make learners different from each other. This talk discusses a range of individual factors and present findings of a small-scale study which explored attitudes of both pre-service and experienced teachers to individual differences with implications for classroom management.
