Most language learners find learning a language stressful and frustrating. However, the problem may not be with the language, but the approach to it. Optimal Language Learning describes the effective, idiosyncratic approaches of five highly gifted language learners, discerns patterns among their stories of success, and describes implications for language learning for anyone who would like to master a new language.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It is refreshing to read about successful language students who come from diverse backgrounds and have such different motivations. I found myself nodding often as I read, writing down ideas concerning what I could do better in the classroom. I would encourage every World Language teacher to read this book. -- Noreen Hanlon, Award winning teacher of French, Ottawa Hills High School, Toledo, Ohio
In a global world where the understanding of languages and cultures becomes increasingly important, Optimal Language Learning offers insight into language acquisition on a personal level that can be used to maximize learning. -- Janet Gorton, World Language Coordinator, Norman, Oklahoma
Optimal Language Learning offers provocative lessons for second language learners while it challenges educators to provide an environment that facilitates language mastery. Highly recommended! -- Jean Oliver, PhD, award winning teacher of Spanish; author
Optimal Language Learning can help teachers and students master a foreign language through facilitating flow and creating meaningful experiences. The book is a milestone in the field of SLA. -- Taewoong Kim, Researcher, The Center for Educational Development and Research, University of Oklahoma
