This 1978 publication is a report of a small-scale research project into language learning by adult learners. This was a relatively early attempt to ask learners about the ‘strategies and techniques’ that they use to learn a language, and the author, GD Pickett, who was at the time Deputy Director of the British Council’s English Teaching Information Centre, states that his intention was for the project to be ‘a starting off point’ which could encourage further research in this area.
