Students’ productivity is directly linked to their mental state or state of
consciousness. With the positive psychology turn at the end of the 1990s and the
present Estonian education strategy explicitly focusing on the subjective well-being of
students, research into mental states or states of consciousness in education is timely.
Flow, also known as “optimal experience”, is a state of consciousness in which one is
both feeling and working at their best. With the aim of potentially increasing flow
opportunities in the foreign language classroom, the current thesis presents an
exploratory study into the flow potential of language learning activities.
