A Psycho-Pragmatic Study of Self-Identity of Kurdish EFL Learners in Kurdistan Region
Mahmood, Ayad Hameed; Hassan, Zana Mahmood
English Language Teaching, v11 n2 p99-112 2018
This paper is an extract from a PhD dissertation on the impacts of learning English on the self-identity of Kurdish EFL learners. Language is a distinctive feature of human being. Similarly, identity is considered as a sign humans are recognized by. So, scrutinizing the relationship between these two related components of human life is revealing. Most of the research papers in this area focus on how language is used as a tool to express someone's identity. However, this research focuses on how the process of learning English makes possible changes, if any, in the learners' self-identity. A Likert-questionnaire of 30 questions is given to 150 EFL learners from three main universities to understand the differences that might happen in the learners' self-identity as a result of learning English. Finally, some conclusions are drawn based on the collected data and the references are documented.
