Reviews

'This volume is unique in that it is a collection of multicultural, interdisciplinary studies using qualitative (Malcolm, Aboshiba) and mixed methods (Woodrow, Taylor, Gao). The mixed methods approach and the longitudinal research design applied in some of these studies offer a deeper examination and understanding of L2 motivation changes as related to English language learning worldwide, as studies on motivation and language acquisition are predominantly survey based.' - LINGUIST

'A welcome aspect of this book is its focus on the local context of language learning and how this interacts with both the learner's concept of self and the motivation to pursue his or her language studies.' - English Today
