Ross, Andrew S.; Rivers, Damian J. – Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching, 2018

Boudreau, Carmen; MacIntyre, Peter D.; Dewaele, Jean-Marc – Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching, 2018
Emotions are a fleeting experience, sometimes lasting only moments before dissipating. Prior research in SLA has either ignored emotions, underestimated their relevance, or has studied them as a relatively stable individual difference variable. In contrast, the present study takes an idiodynamic approach to examine the rapidly changing…

Briggs, Jessica G.; Dearden, Julie; Macaro, Ernesto – Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching, 2018
Learning content through the medium of a second language is a form of education which is growing rapidly in both secondary and tertiary educational phases.

This paper reports on a study investigating the mindsets of 51 pre-service teachers at an Austrian university using Q methodology.

Nakamura, Sachiko – Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching, 2018
Learners' attributions have received increasing attention in second/foreign language (L2) learning. Studies have shown that how learners attribute their performance influences not only their self-efficacy, motivation, and goal attainment but also their emotions (Hsieh, 2012; Hsieh & Kang, 2010; Hsieh & Shallert, 2008; Weiner, 2000, 2014).…

Pawlak, Miroslaw; Kiermasz, Zuzanna – Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching, 2018
Although multilingualism has become a fact of life in the last few decades, this phenomenon has largely failed to find a reflection in research on language learning strategies. Even when scholars have addressed this issue, it has mostly been done with the purpose of proving the advantage of multilingualism over bilingualism, and scant attention…
