This book explores the role of identity in adolescent foreign language learning to provide evidence that an identity-focused approach can make a difference to achievement in education. It uses both in-depth exploratory interviews with language learners and a cross-sectional survey to provide a unique glimpse into the identity dynamics that learners need to manage in their interaction with contradictory relational contexts (e.g. teacher vs. classmates; parents vs. friends), and that appear to impair their perceived competence and declared achievement in language learning. Furthermore, this work presents a new model of identity which incorporates several educational psychology theories (e.g. self-discrepancy, self-presentation, impression management), developmental theories of adolescence and principles of foreign language teaching and learning. This book gives rise to potentially policy-changing insights and will be of importance to those interested in the relationship between self, identity and language teaching and learning.

Review:

This is a carefully researched and well-written book that will be read with much interest and profit by those interested in the increasingly important area of identity in foreign language learning. --Alison Mackey, Georgetown University, USA and Lancaster University, UK

Florentina Taylor delivers, for the first time, an exploration of the identity development of adolescents learning foreign languages. Her quadripolar model of identity provides creative and novel insight into how and why students actively participate in learning. If you are in any way interested in the motivational factors underlying language learning in adolescents, you owe it to yourself to read this book. --Rob Klassen, Psychology in Education Research Centre, University of York, UK

Florentina Taylor's study adds a fresh and original perspective to the vibrant field of studies of the self in SLA. Reading the book will not only extend readers' understandings of adolescents' multiple relational selves and identities, but they will also gain valuable insights into a range of related psychological issues. A bold, intelligent and important contribution to this exciting field. --Sarah Mercer, Universität Graz, Austria
