Beliefs about Language Learning: A Study of Korean University Students Learning English.
Truitt, Susan N.
Texas Papers in Foreign Language Education, v2 n1 Spr 1995
A study investigated the beliefs about language learning of 204 university students learning English as a Second Language (ESL) in Korea. The Beliefs About Language Learning Inventory and a questionnaire eliciting background information were administered to students in Korean. Results, when compared with other studies, indicate some differences in beliefs from those of U.S. foreign language students, ESL students in the United States, ESL students in Taiwan, and even another group of Korean students. In addition, the beliefs of this group were correlated with background factors such as academic major and experience living in an English-speaking country. The findings provide evidence that learner's beliefs about language learning may vary based on cultural background and previous experiences. Contains 19 references. (Author/MSE)
