This collection explores student mobility and study abroad programmes across Europe, presenting original research on personal, linguistic, and intercultural development during study abroad experiences.

The volume synthesizes work from the 2016-2020 Cost Action 15130 'Study Abroad Research in European Perspective' research network, offering a multidisciplinary account of the intersection of language learning and study abroad in Europe amidst the changing contemporary higher education landscape, as well as new directions for future research. The initial section comprises short survey chapters outlining key themes and literature, connecting traditional study abroad research with new multilingual and transnational realities. This is supported by a main section containing original empirical studies in a wide range of European contexts and a short afterword bringing together policy and pedagogical proposals. Taken together, the collection shines a light on the impact of the internationalisation of higher education on linguistic dimensions of student mobility while including a range of lesser studied settings and languages. New insights are offered on language learning, identity, interculturality, student agency and motivation, and transnational social networks in the study abroad context.

This book will be of particular interest to students, researchers and institutions interested in the intersection of language learning and study abroad, including such areas as multilingualism, higher education, and applied linguistics.

Rosamond Mitchell is Emeritus Professor of applied linguistics at the University of Southampton, UK. She has longstanding research interests in second language acquisition and in language in education. Recently her work has focused on study abroad, and its long term consequences for L2 development and maintenance, as well as for language identity.

Henry Tyne lectures in applied linguistics at the University of Perpignan, France, where he is also director of the language centre. His main area of research is L2 variation, in particular within the study abroad context. Through his work on variation he has become interested in the potential of corpora for language learning. His publications include Des documents authentiques aux corpus (Didier, 2014, with Alex Boulton).

                                Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Ein Kopierschutz bzw. Digital Rights Management wird bei diesem E-Book nicht eingesetzt.
