Barriers to language learning motivation in Poland: Insights from interviews with students

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

I got to know Alan when he was one of my lecturers during my master’s programme at Lancaster University. Alan was always interested in real life language classrooms and the experiences of real language learners. He was also very supportive of young researchers exploring these issues. In this presentation, I will discuss a part of my PhD that Alan would be particularly interested in, namely Polish students’ perceptions of barriers to language learning motivation.
The data discussed here was collected via semi-structured interviews with 20 learners of English aged 15-16. The interviewees identified a number of perceived barriers, among than access to extracurricular classes, lifestyle, direct contact with L2 speakers, quality of teaching, and perceived gender roles.
