Portrait of Two Contemporary Language Learners in Higher Education

  • Denyze ToffoliEmail author
Part of the New Language Learning and Teaching Environments book series (NLLTE)


In order to conclude Part I on contemporary language learners in higher education, I propose to move from theoretical considerations to the examination of two student writings that will give them substance. Hadi and Corentin herein report their own practices in English and with languages more generally. I comment on each portrait according to the theories that have been presented so far and areas that will be developed later.
