ESL Undergraduate Students' Perceived Difficulties in American Classrooms.
Inoue, Yukiko
A study investigated the extent to which Asian undergraduate students of English as a second language (ESL) in American institutions had more learning difficulty than non-Asian students, and the relationship of length of time in the United States to the degree of this difficulty. Subjects were 20 randomly-selected ESL undergraduate students at one university, 10 Asian and 10 non-Asian. Data were drawn from a survey eliciting students' demographic data and perceptions of their classroom learning difficulty. Results indicate that the Asian students did feel more difficulty than non-Asian students felt, but found no association between length of stay and degree of perceived difficulty. Suggestions for further research are offered. The student questionnaire and a chart of results are appended. Contains 11 references. (MSE)
