ReALL (Research in Affective Language Learning) is a research group at University of Huelva established in 2002. We aim to study affective factors in language learning and teaching from a wide range of theoretical traditions and research domains. Our strongest belief is that what happens inside and between people affects language learning. We are a team of researchers from several universities of Southern Spain and conduct studies about how affective-effective teaching influences language learning.
