Abstract

[About the book]

With the rapid growth of new environments for language education, out-of-class learning is beginning to rival classroom learning in importance. There is, therefore, a pressing need for research on language learning beyond the classroom to catch up with classroom learning research. As the first published work to deal exclusively with language learning outside conventional classrooms, Beyond the Language Classroom represents an important step in this direction.

Including a theoretical overview of the field, 11 data-based case studies located in a variety of settings around the world, and practical advice on materials development for independent learning, the book addresses theoretical and practical questions that will be of interest not only to language professionals working with learners in out-of-class settings, but also to teachers and researchers with an interest in the role of teaching in out-of-class learning and its relationship to classroom pedagogy.
