Case studies of individual language learners are a valuable means of illustrating issues connected with learning, using, and in some cases, losing another language. Yet, even though increasing numbers of graduate students and scholars conduct research using case studies or mix quantitative and qualitative methods, there are no dedicated applied linguistics research methods texts that guide one through the case study process. This book fills that gap.
The volume provides an overview of case study methodology and examples of published case studies in applied linguistics, without attempting to be a comprehensive survey of the innumerable case studies that exist. The case studies presented here involve teachers and learners of English and various other languages in North America and other parts of the world. Advice is also given about how to conduct and publish case studies.
Case Study Research in Applied Linguistics is designed for students, both undergraduate and graduate, as well as other scholars seeking to understand case study methods and their applications in research on language learners and language users in a variety of contexts. Applied linguists working in other subfields will find the volume useful in their own research and in their supervision and evaluation of others' case studies.
Falling in love is easy. Staying in love and maintaining a deeply satisfying long term relationship is often the challenging part. Marriage is not supposed to be difficult but sometimes it may appear to be that way if we've no idea what to do. Poor role models, lack of experience, unrealistic expectations and erroneous belief systems all impact negatively on a marriage and create unnecessary problems. But it doesn't have to be that way. You can get it right. 500 Tips for a Happy and Healthy Marriage offers practical points which are simple and easy to apply to help you get the most out of your marriage. Sharing your life with the person you love should be the most amazing experience of your life. You don't want to jeopardise it but we often do when faced with life's other stresses. The heartaches that two people can inflict upon each other is often entirely unintentional but the hurt and disappointment felt as a result is no less damaging. 500 Tips for a Happy and Healthy Marriage will illustrate that the key to a strong and lasting marriage is togetherness i.e. sharing a life that is fully integrated where you simply take good care of each other. To love is to value therefore you should make it a top priority to do the things which you know make each other happy. Be vigilant. It's the little things you do on a regular basis, not the big things you do once in a while, that make a marriage last.
