Students of Arabic at the University of Wisconsin.
Kuntz, Patricia S.
A study investigated the beliefs about second language learning held by two populations of students of Arabic at the University of Wisconsin: 17 students studying first-semester Arabic in a campus classroom, and 6 students studying the same curriculum through a correspondence course. The subjects were of widely varying backgrounds, and some demographic differences were found in the two groups. A 47-item Likert-type scale was administered to identify language and language learning attitudes. Results indicate that some differences in beliefs about language learning exist between the two groups in question. Implications for curriculum and instruction are explored briefly. The instrument used in the study is appended. (Contains 27 references.) (MSE)
