Attitudes and "Cultural Distance" in Second Language Acquisition.
Svanes, Bjorg
Applied Linguistics, v9 n4 p357-71 Dec 1988
Investigation of the relationship between attitudes, second language proficiency, and "cultural distance" in 170 foreign students at a Norwegian university showed that cultural distance significantly influenced subjects' attitudes toward Norwegians, fellow countrymen, and an ideal person. There was no positive relationship between grades and attitudes. (Author/CB)
