Abstract Tertiary student attrition comes with a multi-billion dollar financial cost, and untold personal consequences. Nevertheless, the majority of the research into the field has a retrospective orientation, explaining the loss of students after is too late. This volume has greater ambition: it tackles the question of what factors cause attrition at a very early stage, and suggest a single intervention that can dramatically reduce attrition. Evidence from a pilot study testing the intervention is reported, and suggest that university college lecturers and professors can act early, and easily to reduce first year student attrition. While the volume focuses on elementary Spanish language courses as a case study, the findings apply equally to a broad range of disciplines.
