Language Learning Beyond the Classroom


Add your own review!

Overview

This volume presents case studies of language learning beyond the classroom. The studies draw on a wide range of contexts, from North and South America to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. Each provides principled links between theory, research and practice. While out-of-class learning will not replace the classroom, ultimately all successful learners take control of their own learning. This book shows how teachers can help learners bridge the gap between formal instruction and autonomous language learning. Although English is the primary focus of most chapters, there are studies on a range of other languages including Spanish and Japanese.

Reviews

I am happy to see this innovative collection.... I do not know of another volume with this focus. So, this is a very exciting venture, and I am very pleased to see it. MaryAnn Christison, University of Utah, Department of Linguistics/Urban Institute for Teacher Education, USA This is a very original idea and an innovative publication, certainly in keeping with the times with its attention to autonomy, digital learning, and language learner strategies. Paul Nation, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand Language Learning Beyond the Classroom offers a new perspective on autonomouslearning by showing how out-of-class learning can complement classroom-based learning. This shift of perspective is especially timely in an era in which rapidly developing internet-based technologies and opportunities for travel have dramatically expanded affordances for foreign language learning and use beyond the classroom. Phil Benson, Macquarie University
