Due to globalization and rapid technological developments, the profile of foreign language learners has drastically changed. Such a change makes a more careful consideration of individual learner differences by prospective foreign language teachers necessary. Therefore, this seminar provides students a thorough understanding of the most important areas such as learning strategies and learning style, culture, foreign language aptitude, and intelligence. Some questions to be discussed are as follows: What is it that makes for a good language learner? Why do some learners of foreign languages excel, while others struggle? How do learner characteristics relate to effective language learning? What could be the implications for the foreign language teaching situation?
