Attitudes of Jordanian Students towards Using Group Work in EFL Classrooms
Ababneh, Sana'
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v8 n1 p233-237 Feb 2017
This paper addresses itself to the outcomes of a field study which was carried out to identify Jordanian EFL students' attitudes towards using group work in EFL classrooms. The study sample consisted of 179 students enrolled in English 101, an elementary language skills course taught at Al- Huson University College, Al -Balqa' Applied University, Jordan. A questionnaire was used to investigate the subjects' attitudes. The findings show that approximately two-thirds of the participants are either "very extrovert" or "somewhat extrovert", i.e. they have positive attitudes towards participating in group work in EFL classes. In contrast, only a third are either "somewhat introvert" or "very introvert", i.e., they do not like to take part in group work in EFL classes. Moreover, the data show that neither the subjects' gender nor their secondary school stream (vocational, scientific, or literary) has any significant effect on their preferences.
