View Counter: Resumen | 0 | times, Article PDF |




The research was conducted in several English as a Second Language (ESL) classes at a Midwest American university town. The study participants were 15 international students from various different Secondary Schools who are currently enrolled at this university. Data was collected by using a mixed-methods approach with surveys and follow-up interviews, and was analyzed using descriptive statistics and content analysis. Results have shown that learners’ beliefs and their learning background have an influence on their perceptions of learning activities and teaching methods. In terms of enjoyment of such practices, there was an apparent inclination towards interactive and communicative approaches rather than

 traditional, non-communicative ones, whereas no distinct style was favored in regard to effectiveness.
