Title: Lessons from Good Language Learners
Edited By: Carol Griffiths
Description:

Inspired by a ground-breaking article by Joan Rubin in 1975 in which she
set out to identify the strategies used by successful language learners,
this edited collection re-examines the same topic in the light of current
thinking and research, considers the implications for language teaching and
learning, and looks at some of the questions which are still unresolved.
