The theoretical emphasis within the L2 Motivational Self System has typically been on the two future self-guides representing possible (ideal and ought-to) selves, leaving the third main dimension of the construct, the L2 Learning Experience, somewhat undertheorized.

Henry, Alastair; Thorsen, Cecilia – Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
L2 motivation is a relational phenomenon, shaped by teacher responsiveness (Lamb, 2017; Ushioda, 2009). Little, however, is known about the practices in which responsiveness is manifested.

No work so far has been carried out on the differential effect of positive and negative emotions on foreign language…

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.

In contrast, the present study takes an idiodynamic approach to examine the rapidly changing…
