Evanthia Avgerou

Abstract


This paper seeks to explore whether English language learning is viewed as an accumulation of language skills merely for the acquisition of a foreign language certificate, which is the commonly held view regarding English language instruction in Greece, or Junior High School learners would wish to have a more holistic view of foreign language learning in the context of a challenging multicultural environment. The research was conducted in a Greek state school of a rural area and renders significant results as to the shift of focus from traditional views regarding English language teaching in Greece to what contemporary teenagers would like to accomplish through foreign language instruction provided by the state. The paper ultimately identifies the needs of Junior High School learners regarding English language instruction through the use of a questionnaire and discusses the implications of the findings for the amendment of the existing teaching materials to the benefit of the learners.
