    Overview

    Aims and Scope

It closely examines their changing learning goals, underlying motivations and strategy uses during both short and long academic programmes in a study abroad context.

    Reviews

    The research in this book includes a valuable set of case studies of how learning strategies are used across contexts and stages of study. The book takes a broad, holistic perspective on a set of learners with some commonalities (for example, Arab ethnicity), without exoticizing them. This is well supported with further readings for researchers and also implications for teachers and others working in education.

    The highly engaging narratives of international students' language learning efforts in this book help us appreciate how these students strategically maneuvered themselves in complex, shifting contexts to pursue what they desired to have. It is sure to inspire language learning strategy researchers with its rich insights for further research.
