An important shift can be observed over the last few decades in the field of learning that could be summarized in: less emphasis on teachers and teaching - more stress on learners and learning. This reflects on language education and applied linguistics in many ways that also apply to the learning of a foreign language.
Literature plays a major role in involving students in the learning process inasmuch as it provokes an individual and personal response to a specific text. Each learner creates a different relationship with the same text.
Literature is rich in potential for group discussion, enhancing language learning and developing comprehension skills.
It is an unbeatable source of vocabulary and the road leading straight into a world that is alien to us as foreigners but which we must gain access to if we want to master a foreign language.
