Abstract

This paper offers insights from an activity theory perspective into the English in Action (EiA) project in an attempt to reveal the motivations accompanying the selection of particular areas of focus for the baseline studies. An overview of the background to the project is provided, followed by a review of the individual baseline studies. The paper then provides an activity theory analysis that reviews the attachment of individual study topics to the components of an activity theory framework.
