I am very happy to announce that Language Learning Strategies and Individual Learner Characteristics, the edited collection described in the call for papers below, has just been published by Bloomsbury.

The volume, which is edited by Rebecca Oxford and Carmen Amerstorfer,  describes the connections between the intrapersonal characteristics of language learners, the language learning strategies (LLS) that they use, and the contexts in which language learning takes place. It consists of 12 chapters, which are flanked by an introduction and an ending by the editors. These are grouped in four parts, which look into the following themes:

  1. Theoretical foundations of LLS
  2. Research methodologies for investigating LLS and individual differences
  3. Empirical studies of LLS and individual differences
  4. Teacher education
