Emotion SIG.png


Given the rise of research interest in emotions in foreign language education, as well as the inter-disciplinary nature of the research, we believe it is a prudent time to advance collaborative, inter-disciplinary research in the field of emotions in language learning and teaching. This SIG seeks to provide a platform to present research ideas and findings, and provide a space for members to ask and answer methodological and theoretical questions on the topic of emotions.


Coordinator: Jean-Marc Dewaele
