Abstract

This methodologically focused chapter discusses some of the main issues relating to affect and outlines reasons why the study of emotions is important to understanding the processes of language learning and teaching. It also explores the difficulty of investigating emotions and suggests methods for doing so that might be the most effective. The chapter outlines how her experience of using think-aloud verbal protocols has persuaded her of their value as a tool for revealing participants' thought processes.
