Summary
"Narratives of Learning and Teaching EFL is a collection of research reports on lived experiences of the English language with a focus on the subjective meanings and emotions involved in English-as-a-Foreign-Language contexts of learning and teaching, including Japan, Brazil, and some European countries. Contributors make use of fresh theoretical frameworks and innovative methods of data collection and analysis (including verbal and visual narratives). It works as a kaleidoscope, providing a variety of perspectives on learning and teaching EFL through narrative research. The intended audience consists of experienced scholars and also students about to begin their careers as researchers. The idea is to encourage others to try out some of the theoretical frameworks or narrative methodology in their own contexts of EFL or other foreign languages or by extending these to contexts of second languages. Narratives of Learning and Teaching EFL can thus function as a source of ideas - and also as a tool kit."--BOOK JACKET
