Self-Instruction and Success: A Learner-Profile Study.
Jones, Francis R.
Applied Linguistics, v19 n3 p378-406 Sep 1998
Interviews with adults experienced in foreign language self-instruction generated profiles of language experience at learner and self-instructed language-token levels. Results showed separations between languages with and without self-instruction. The most effective learning route was starting with classwork. Ab initio self-instruction produced low command and high dropout. Sense of success was based on self-image. L1-L2 cognacy had little effect on achievement. (SM)
