Investigating Students' Attitudes and Preferences towards Learning English at Kuwait University
Al-Bustan, Suad Ahmed; Al-Bustan, Lamees
College Student Journal, v43 n2 p454-463 Jun 2009
This study is performed by conducting a survey analysis to investigate students' attitudes and preferences towards learning English at Kuwait University in non-English major ESL students. The sample size will be roughly 21-22% of a total of 4950 college level English Language learners at Kuwait University where specific English courses are part of the required University curriculum. The results of this survey will thus enable us to review some causes that may have hindered University English learning in the past, and focus on students' perspectives about learning English. One of the by-products of this study will be to illustrate students' academic preference within the Language process, which in return will assist us as educators to promote learning motivation. Researchers, ESL teachers and administrators need to consider the fact that they need to have keys for knowing their students' attitudes and preferences towards learning English for motivation purposes. This research will provide some of the most significant keys available. (Contains 8 tables.)
