Evaluative and Emotional Factors in Learning a Foreign Language.
Begin, Yves
This report of an educational experiment compares the methods and evaluates the results of two instructional approaches to language learning. The "community learning" method, in which emotional factors are believed crucial in the development of the instructional method, and a traditional approach are compared as to their effectiveness in the areas of: speaking, auditory and reading comprehension, motivation, anomie, mastery of logical structures in French, and student attitudes toward French Canada and the study of French. Results reveal that subjects in the experimental group achieve as well as students in the traditional group; however, attitudes and motivation to learn French were significantly improved. This study discusses: (1) related literature, (2) design, procedures, and instruments used in the experiment, (3) results of tests and discussion, (4) individual differences in the appraisals of the learning experience, and (5) conclusions. A bibliography and list of tables are included. (RL)
