This project aimed at students and teachers at both secondary and tertiary level seeks to contribute to our understanding of the crucial role emotions play in the foreign language classroom. While their role in foreign language learning has been widely researched, there is still a lack of knowledge as to how to apply it and put these findings into practice. This is what we seek to explore on a twofold way: in a first instance, we are planning to conduct interviews with both language students and teachers where we aim to build on their own experiences and opinion and establish links to findings from previous studies. In a next step, we will build on the knowledge gained and in a one-day event, consisting of talks and workshops, we aim to further explore possibilities with practitioners to implement the research findings in the language classroom, a much needed further step in understanding the role of emotions in foreign langauge learning and teaching.
