Linguaculture Resistance: An Intercultural Adjustment Perspective on Negative Learner Attitudes in Japan, Juntendo Journal of Global Studies, Vol. 2, pp. 66–78
Description: This article reports on an exploratory study of negative attitudes towards English language learning among Japanese learners. Results showed that negative student comments provided evidence of resistance, including self-criticism and psychological distancing. The notion of resistance is proposed as a way to gain insight into, and destigmatize, negative attitudes among language learners. Ideas for further research are suggested.
