This book is for anyone who has wondered the ways HL speakers think about themselves and their changing identities across time and space. For those who stereotypically conceptualise CHL learners as a homogeneous, diasporic, and language minority population, this book will be an eye opener by revealing CHL identity as a superdiverse construct rather than a unitary entity. This book captures the authentic voices from university CHL learners from diverse backgrounds who identify themselves in different and similar ways. This book develops a new account of HL learner identity and its relation to three realms of social realities: language learning, language use, and social experience.
