Psychology for Language Learning: Insights from Research, Theory and Practice
Data were generated through a series of in-depth interviews and narratives over a two-year period with a single, female tertiary-level EFL learner. The data were then analysed in a grounded manner taking a complexity perspective. The findings illustrate how agency can be conceived of as a complex dynamic system composed of a number of constituent components; each of which is itself a dynamic complex system. The paper ends by discussing the findings in respect to pedagogy and future research.

Yet, to date, learner emotions have been studied more frequently than those of teachers. We use the metaphor of teachers being like orchestra conductors, attuned to -and regulating- the emotions in the classroom.
