Phil Hiver, assistant professor of Foreign and Second Language Education, published a new article in the journal Studies in Second Language Acquisition. The article explores second language learners’ capacity to overcome difficulties during the course of ordinary second language learning. The study is a first in the field of language learning on this subject matter and surveyed 787 college-level second language-learning students in South Korea to determine what Hiver coined as “buoyancy”–“the capacity to overcome the setbacks, challenges, and pressures that are part of the ordinary course of school life.” Hiver discovered five specific profiles of buoyancy and, by examining these profiles, could predict both achievement and GPA.
