Willingness to Communicate, Multilingualism and Interactions in Community Contexts (Psychology of Language Learning and Teaching #22) (Hardcover)
This book examines the communication behaviours of individuals in multilingual community contexts. Using a complexity lens and the presentation of a revised 3D pyramid model, the authors demonstrate the dynamic nature of willingness to communicate over time and shed new light on processes that affect communication, migration and well-being.
