A Rolling Up of Sleeves

Working Title:

The relationship between attitudes to language learning and second language acquisition: a case study of three Libyan English language learners.

Since our internet connexion was fixed earlier this week, like a dog returning to its vomit, I've been spending time on the frivolous side of Flickr, (that's DMU to those in the know). It has to stop. I've been leaving my Module 4 folder from the University of Leicester out in prominent places to spook me back into studying, and that's succeeded. Fortunately, my workmate Dan has an MA and did his dissertation in the related area of motivation, so he had some books (Dornyei) to lend me.

So it's bye-bye Flickr, hello SLA for the next couple of months. The next couple of weeks, in particular, I can get a hell of a lot done as regards reading and checking sources.
