This book presents empirical studies on the various factors that influence English language learning and teaching in India. In particular, the author examines whether and to what extent the variables which have been shown to influence second language learning in monolingual countries also apply to the Indian situation which is characterized by multilingualism and multiculturalism. Among the various aspects discussed in this book are Indian students` (and their teachers`) ‘theories’ about learning English; their preferences or styles for language learning; the learning and reading strategies they use to enhance their competence in English; the degree of language learning anxiety they experience; and their attitudes toward, and motivation for, learning English. Ravi Sheorey also explores Indian teachers` judgments of the errors they come across in the writings of their students. The results are compared to studies with subjects from other countries and the implications for the learning and teaching of English are discussed in each chapter. Printed Pages: 226.
