Changing Students' Attitudes To See Practical and Long-Term Application of a Foreign Language.
Kujda, Frances M.
A study investigated the use of classroom strategies to improve students' attitudes about language study while improving their practical use of the language. Secondary school students of Spanish completed an interest survey, and then were involved in language class activities including writing paragraphs, watching a recorded television show, reading Spanish-language literature, writing descriptively, participating in a scavenger hunt, and listening to a native speaker's presentation on Mexican culture. After 10 weeks, students completed another interest survey, and the results were compared to those of the first survey. It was found that the implementation of the activities was successful in improving student attitudes about language learning. Survey forms are appended. (MSE)
