The affective domain and the emotional factors which influence language learning have been of interest in the field of language teaching for a number of years. By proposing a holistic approach to the learning process, this volume takes the position that the language learning experience will be much more effective when both affect and cognition are considered. The eighteen chapters discuss issues such as memory, anxiety, self-esteem, facilitation, autonomy, classroom activities, and assessment from the perspective of affect. Affect in Language Learning will be of interest to teachers-in-preparation, teachers, teacher educators, curriculum designers, programme administrators and researchers and to those second language teaching professionals who wish to improve language teaching through a greater awareness of the role affect plays.

'Affect in Language Learning is an 18 chapter compendium of finger-on-the-pulse humanistic thought and practice. It is interesting to see how so many varied approaches have led to the same conclusion about the importance of affect in learning. That [this] is an important book in the humanistic genre is of no doubt.' Greta Magazine, Spain 'There's a lot of stimulating stuff here. Recommended.' ELT News, Austria
