Abstract:

This book explores the social construction of age in the context of EFL in 
Mexico. It is the first book to address the age factor in SLA from a social 
perspective. Based on research carried out at a public university in Mexico, it 
investigates how adults of different ages experience learning a new language 
and how they enact their age identities as language learners. By approaching 
the topic from a social constructionist perspective and in light of recent work in 
sociolinguistics and cultural studies, it broadens the current second language 
acquisition focus on age as a fixed biological or chronological variable to 
encompass its social dimensions. What emerges is a more complex and 
nuanced understanding of age as it intersects with language learning in a way 
that links it fundamentally to other social phenomena, such as gender, ethnicity 
and social class.
