Wang, Wendy
TESL Canada Journal, v16 n2 p1-19 Spr 1999
Presents 30 adult Chinese immigrant women's accounts of their experiences with, and perceptions of, learning English as a Second Language in Canada. Results from interviews with two age groups of adult women reveal the complexity of adult second-language acquisition, which involves factors pertaining both to the learners, and to the social context in which the second language is learned.
