Motivation To Learn English in Hong Kong.
Lai, Eva Fung-Kuen
Language, Culture and Curriculum, v12 n3 p280-84 1999
Compares pre- and post-1997 attitudes to the learning of English in Hong Kong. The study is based on surveys conducted in 1980, 1992, 1995, and 1998, and also on newspaper reports. Data confirm the strong instrumental, career-related motives of the learners, which have been previously reported not only for Chinese learners, but for Asian learners in general. (Author/VWL)
