Positive psychology in action: fostering resilience in language learners

Herbert Puchta

Recent studies show that students can learn to become resilient, discovering how to deal with negative emotions and enjoying their learning more.

We will discuss what we as teachers can do to help develop the ‘growth mindsets’ that our students need to foster their resilience, motivation, emotional engagement and creativity – all of which are needed for academic success.
