Focus Group Used in Model Conceptualization: The Ideal English as a Second Language Program.
Brogan, Ray F.
The purpose of the focus group design described in this paper was to identify the needs of students in English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) programs for use by researchers, program designers, and teachers. The pilot focus group consisted of students from various programs who were preparing to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language. They were asked to conceptualize the ideal ESL course. Despite the cultural diversity within the pilot focus group, many common observations were expressed. The experience led participants to accept the focus group methodology as an excellent forum for providing information to decision-makers before a program begins.
