Summary and Info
The focus of Language, Identity and Study Abroad is on issues of identity and intercultural competence in the context of students facing the challenges of study abroad, in particular students from Asia. Thoroughly grounded in recent research and, in particular, sociocultural studies in language acquisition and socialization, the book offers both a critical chronicle and a demonstration of how combining distinct methodologies can contribute to a rich account of experience. Scholars in applied linguistics, cultural studies, and, in particular, international language educators will find not only extensively documented data but a principled rationale for undertaking such research with 'post-colonial' students more generally.
