Foreign Students' Attitudes in Portuguese Language Classrooms: An Exploratory Study
Cabral, Maria
Intercultural Education, v16 n3 p279-291 Aug 2005
This exploratory study aims to investigate the attitudes and motivation of four English-speaking students in two Portuguese public schools towards their Portuguese and English language classes. Our research revealed that that the needs of these students were not met in their Portuguese language classes nor their English language classes. This can be attributed to various factors, including traditional teaching methods and classroom environments that largely ignored the fact that foreign students were sharing the classroom.
