Alzahrani, Khalid Saleh
English Language Teaching, v10 n9 p108-130 2017
The BBC Learning English website has become an important method of learning and studying English as a second language, a resource that enhances the importance of e-learning. The aim of the current research is to find Saudi students' knowledge of and attitude towards e-resources on BBC Learning English. The sample size was 28 participants (17 male and 11 female participants). The knowledge and attitude were assessed based on scales (from a questionnaire) and their outcomes were correlated with each other; the effect of gender, age and reason for learning were also assessed in relation to the knowledge and attitude variables. Using appropriate statistical tests it was found that there is a significant positive relationship between the knowledge of e-resources and the attitude towards them on BBC Learning English. Gender was not found to have an effect on the attitude scale; however age appeared to have a significant effect on the knowledge variable. The reason for learning English was not found to have an effect on the knowledge of e-resources.
