    This contribution focuses on the crucial importance of multilingualism in shaping identity and personality. After a short look at the key issues in the field, it considers research on language learner classroom emotions before looking at the challenges that foreign language users face in communicating their emotions appropriately. Attention is also paid to research in Psychology and Applied Linguistics on the effects of socialisation and emotional acculturation. It concludes with a brief reflection on the development of the field of emotion and multilingualism, and on the impact it might have on academia and on society in general.
