About this book

The authors examine the continuing poor relationship between boys and the study of foreign languages. Framed by discussion of gender socialization, gendered curriculum practices and cultural narratives about boys and schooling, the core of the book is constructed by boys themselves.

Reviews

'....the discussion is thorough, lucid and thought provoking...one of the virtues of this book is its insistence that, even in a single society, the effects of culture and gender are neither uniform nor monolithic...For both researchers and practitioners, their book has much to offer...'

- Deborah Cameron, Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development
