Language Learning

Is It Enough? Intensive Program for ESL Students (Published)

In most EFL classes, the four language skills are taught to help students learn a language efficiently. When these language abilities are taught using the appropriate method, the linguistic gaps of English language learners may be filled. This study aims to investigate the level of improvement of EFL students after finishing 13-week semi-intensive language courses that concentrated on reading, writing, and conversation skills. A pre-test and a post-test of the same kind were administered to 62 participants, first-year students in the English department at the College of Basic Education, to gauge their language development. The participants were given a questionnaire to fill so as to understand their viewpoints concerning the treatment phase. The results showed that the majority of students improved after concluding the language skills courses. Most participants believed in the importance of reading as the most effective language learning skill and found it quite interesting.

The Role of the Family in English Language Learning (Published)

This study investigates the role of family in English language learning particularly in Bangladesh. Family role is very important to grow the sense of learning in learners as they are greatly influenced by it. Parents’ positive attitude, education and awareness according to individual requirements and needs provide constant encouragement and support for the learners. Parents make the greatest difference to achievement through supporting their learning at home rather than supporting activities in school. A learner, whose family members are habituated to use English at home, feels encouraged to learn English which facilitates learning process. My findings, on the other hand, show that children of those parents who are unaware of providing sound family atmosphere lack confidence as well as self-esteem. This study also examines the impact of home environment on children’s achievement in English language. My findings reveal that there is consistent relationship between the role of family and students’ academic achievement.
