"A Language Teacher is Like ... ": Examining Malaysian Students'Perceptions of Language Teachers Through Metaphor Analysis by Larisa Nikitina( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article examines metaphors about language teachers created by a group of 23 Malaysian university students. The aims of the study are (1) to determine whether metaphors produced by language learners in the Asian educational context can fit into the four philosophical perspectives on education outlined by Oxford et al. (1998), and (2) to explore whether students' gender influences their metaphor production. This study employs both qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis. The results of the content analysis of 27 metaphors produced by the participants show that Oxford et al.'s (1998) typology of metaphors is applicable in the Malaysian educational context. In addition, the qualitative analysis reveals that the imagery used in the metaphors is, to some extent, gender-related. However, the results of statistical analysis indicate that there are no statistically significant differences in the perceptions of the teacher's role between the students of different genders. Pedagogical implications of the research findings are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)

Language Classroom: A "Girls' Domain"? Female and Male Students'Perspectives on Language Learning by Larisa Nikitina( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Substantial research has been done on gender differences in relation to various aspects of learning and teaching. In the field of language learning learner's gender and its relationship with emotional (affective) components of language study has been a subject of numerous academic inquiries. These studies have focused on female and male students' motivational patterns, classroom behaviour, conceptions of teacher-student interaction, etc. However, research on beliefs about language learning from the gender perspective has been lacking. The present study aims to address this gap and examines beliefs held by one hundred seven students learning a foreign (Russian) language at Universiti Malaysia Sabah (ums). The participants were asked to respond to questionnaires after which the obtained data were computed and the statistical analysis was performed to assess whether the male and female students' beliefs about language learning were significantly different. Pedagogical implications of the research findings are briefly discussed. (Contains 5 tables.)

Integrative Motivation: How Perceptions of the Target Language CountryInfluence Students' Motivational Pattern by Larisa Nikitina( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Motivation has been recognized by both psychologists and educators as one of the key elements for a successful learning outcome. In research on motivation in language learning, it is customary to view the construct as a dyadic unity of integrative and instrumental motivation. The former includes the learners' attitudes towards the culture and native speakers of the target language. This research aims to explore whether integrative motivation is ubiquitous in the foreign language classroom. For this purpose, context analysis of the open-ended questionnaires was carried out to examine perceptions that students learning Russian at Universiti Malaysia Sabah (ums) have about Russia, its culture and people. As the results revealed, initially, only scant traces of integrative motivation were detected. However, in the course of the language program, "integrative" drive intensified. The paper proceeds to discuss whether and how pedagogical intervention might alter the learners' motivational pattern. (Contains 2 tables.)
