  • It's All about My Mother [Language]: The Effect of Mother Language on
           Spoken Errors Made by EFL Arab Students

    • Abstract: There is a paucity of empirical research documenting the errors made by Arab learners, specifically those enrolled in higher education, when acquiring spoken English. The current study examined the most common types of verbal errors made by 20 Arab tertiary students of English in Israel. Data were collected based on in-class oral presentations made by first-year students and observations of English lessons taught by third-year students. The most frequent errors were classified into three main categories: (a) grammar and syntax, (b) pronunciation, and (c) vocabulary choice.  Errors were documented by the researchers, who also served as course instructors/mentors. A significant number of errors (1050) were documented in the delivery of the presentations and lessons. Analysis of the results suggest that the documented errors are largely attributable to L1 interference (interlingual causes), although some derive from challenges inherent to English itself (intralingual). The importance of this study is that it clarifies the difficulties Israeli Arab learners face while speaking English as a foreign language, which can cast light on potential remedies.

  • “We Wear Face Shield and Mask”: COVID-19 Related Words and Phrases
           Used by Thai Learners of English

    • Abstract: Since 2020, measures against the COVID-19 pandemic have been implemented worldwide, and these are reflected in language. The objectives of this study are to explore the use of COVID-19 - related words and terms in Thai learners of English, document their usage, and investigate their varieties and errors, and suggest pedagogical implications for using authentic online materials in teaching English. The data were the written language that were collected from January 2021 to July 2021 from online Facebook groups administered by students of an open university in Thailand. A qualitative descriptive method of analysis was used. Words and terms related to the pandemic were thematically categorized and analyzed considering loanwords and borrowing. Patterns of use were analyzed and compared with corpora. The findings emerged from the analysis. There are a number of COVID-19 related loanwords from English used by Thai learners of English and the conventionalization of these loanwords, varieties and errors are observed. Most of the loanwords were used in code-mixing, and this is likely the source of errors when Thai learners use these words in their English. The findings have some pedagogical implications. The paper recommended that teachers identify and correct students’ errors immediately. Students should sometimes also be given some explanation about the errors in order to prevent potential overgeneralization of word use. Furthermore, the paper recommended that further research be carried out on the new terms that have been transferred to Thai language as loanwords, loan-translations and loan-blends.

  • The Diversity of Learning Materials in Enhancing English Proficiency: A
           Review on Cambridge IELTS Test Papers

    • Abstract: The study aims to explore the diversity of learning materials in enhancing English proficiency by evaluating Cambridge IELTS Test Papers. This study thoroughly evaluates the Cambridge IELTS test papers ranging from volume one (1996) to volume seventeen (June 2022). While analyzing study results using the cognitive ability of the authors, this study also uses secondary data collected from videos, journal articles, Cambridge IELTS test papers, and organization websites. This study finds 1082 categories of various topics under 22 different areas related to art, academic, agriculture, archaeology, business, culture, economics, education, entertainment, environment, health issues, history, human resources, information technology (IT), language, media, psychology, science, social issues, sports, transportation, tourism, and miscellaneous. Science and academic areas cover most topics; eventually, business overtook all. In addition to the diversity of learning materials, this study also critically defines the diversity of range, length, source, and test format assessment criteria. Finally, this study presents a set of guidelines for improving language skills among learners. Within the guidelines, we argue that English language learners should start learning with preferred topics and proceed to learn with enough variety of learning materials daily. They can make a plan for one week with enough variety and must stick to that study plan. Listening is an excellent start to becoming a master of a foreign language. This set of guidelines is a complete guide to learning English, from which IELTS test takers would benefit. However, this study needs more evidence from empirical research about to what extent the diversity of learning materials influences learning levels among learners worldwide, which future research could cover.

  • An Exploration of Students’ Learning Motivation and Level of
           Participation through the Use of Mobile Tech in Classrooms

    • Abstract: This paper aims to combine Mobile Tech (Modible Technology) and the SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition) model to create suitable teaching materials to enhance students’ learning motivation and classroom participation. This course, “Classroom Management”, is a compulsory junior-year course. The department’s policy is to teach all compulsory courses in English only. However, students’ English ability may not be high enough to absorb teaching content successfully. In addition, with the availability of cellphones, students tend to become distracted easily if they have no access to their phones during class. It is apparent that the traditional teaching methods of using PPT and paper-based worksheets are not receiving enough attention from students. To enhance learning effectiveness and learning motivation, this study aims to design a course and relevant teaching materials with Mobile Tech following the SAMR model. The SAMR model by Dr. Roben Puentedura (2006, 2016) refers to using technology to perform substitution, augmentation, modification, and redefinition of the original teaching materials or activities. Following this model, this study hopes to design teaching materials combined with Mobile Tech that could better enhance students’ learning motivation.

  • Implementing Minecraft as a Tool to Teach Vocabulary in a Saudi
           Intermediate School: An Experimental Study

    • Abstract: Utilizing digital games for learning vocabulary can be auspicious. Thus, the current study investigates the potential effectiveness of implementing Minecraft to teach vocabulary. The participants who underwent this study were eighteen students of intermediate Saudi schools in Riyadh. They are 12-13 years old. They were grouped into two groups: the experimental and control groups. The pupils were randomly chosen. Both groups were taught the same vocabulary. While the control group was taught via the traditional methods, the experimental group was taught by using Minecraft. The experiment lasted two weeks before the post-test was carried out. The researcher made an observation sheet to examine students' acceptance of employing Minecraft and their behaviors towards it. The results of the pre-post tests were analyzed through SPSS. The present study's findings revealed a significant distinction in favor of the experimental group, which was taught using Minecraft. In addition, the students exhibited a positive attitude towards Minecraft. Besides, it is desired that teachers support other learning methods, including games that raise creativity and construct a comfortable condition.

  • Teacher-Student Interaction for English-Medium Instruction (EMI) Content
           and Language Learning and the Effects of Implementing Multimodal Input of
           Classroom Interaction: University Students’ Perceptions

    • Abstract: The discourse of interaction, Initiation-Response-Feedback (I-R-F) gained its popularity by fostering discussion between the teacher and learners but received critics for developing interactive communication in a controlled manner. With an attempt to provide pragmatic implications for EMI instructors, the study probed into perceptions of students (n=42) from different majors on how two pedagogical approaches (i.e., the I-R-F and the multimodal input of classroom interaction) differed in one EMI Cross-cultural Communication course in one middle-ranked university in Taiwan. The comparative, quasi-experiment research firstly investigated these students’ perceptions of teacher-student interaction for EMI content and language learning and secondly compared their perceptions on the implementation of the multimodal input of classroom interaction against the conventional baseline, the I-R-F. Both quantitative (i.e., survey) and qualitative (i.e., post-lesson student reflection journals and audio recordings) research methods were used. The survey results showed that these students were inclined to engage in extensive and substantial verbal output, expressed the importance of teacher-student interaction for learning the content of the course, and expected chances of lengthy verbal output and corrective feedback from the instructor. The results from students’ journals yielded that the instructor’s use of the multimodal input of classroom interaction significantly outperformed the use of the I-R-F in the categories of effectiveness, the level of student engagement, and the effectiveness of helping them learn the content. Ultimately, it was found that the use of the multimodal input of classroom interaction had triggered their higher-order of cognitive processing more (i.e., analyzing, evaluating, and creating).

  • The Development of TPACK for Trilingual Teachers in Chinese Ethnic
           Minority Regions

    • Abstract: From observing on the trilingual class education in Jinkouhe, a Chinese ethnic minority region, the author examines the widespread absence of the use of information technology application in trilingual education, although the multimedia hardware has been equipped generally. language education should be learner-centered with the emergence of and increased emphasis on informatization. Thus, the English teachers should be provided with Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge (TPACK). This paper describes theoretical research on the development of TPACK for trilingual educators, based on the current condition of the information technology application in Chinese Ethnic Minority. The trilingual educators’ community is supposed to develop by applying TPACK, which contributes to the establishment of a trilingual education model and the formulation of minority language policy.

  • EFL Learners Interaction with Feedback Presented through a
           Computer-Assisted Reading Program

    • Abstract: This article examines the interaction patterns of second language (L2) learners when engaging with different types of feedback presented through a computer reading program. There were 12 EFL learners who were asked to complete reading exercises in the program, and the way they interacted with the feedback provided was examined through interviews, observations and think-aloud exercises. The qualitative analyses explored participants' experience of the reading feedback and how EFL learners of different language levels behaved when presented with knowledge of correct response (KCR), elaborated feedback (EF), and no feedback. The results showed limited use of the EF, and most students relied on KCR to guide their reading. In addition, many of the participants commented on the complexity of the EF, which presented as a barrier to facilitating reading comprehension. From the interviews, it was discovered that feedback could negatively influence the reading experience for low-level learners as the feedback was not accessible enough to help in the reading comprehension process.

  • Exploring Reading Engagement in English as an International Language (EIL)
           Materials

    • Abstract: The popularity of English as an International Language has been rapidly growing, contributing EIL materials to have become more widespread in learning. This study discusses students’ reading engagement and their perception of EIL materials, which aims to (1) investigate students’ engagement in reading EIL materials, (2) explore student perception of EIL materials, and (3) explore the relationship between students’ level of reading engagement and their perception of EIL materials. 113 undergraduate students at one private college who use English as a medium for their instruction were participated in this study. A mixed-method study which Reading Engagement Questionnaire and EIL Perception Questionnaire were adopted and constructed to explore the findings and an interview protocol was designed to triangulate with the questionnaires’ findings. The study revealed that students engaged in reading EIL materials in a neutral level and perceived EIL materials positively. Students possessed all four constructs of reading engagement in EIL materials: competence-related beliefs, task values, behavioral engagement in reading texts, and engaged readers. Furthermore, students perceived positively with four principles of EIL: current status of English, varieties of English, strategies for multilingual/multicultural communication and English reader’s identities. Interestingly, there was a positive relationship between students’ reading engagement and their perception of EIL materials.

  • Effectiveness of Microsoft Teams in Student Teachers' Achievement in
           an EFL Teaching Methods Course

    • Abstract: The effectiveness of the Microsoft Teams platform in various subject areas was evident in literature, particularly as much as reflected by students’ and instructors’ perceptions and as rarely as proven by students’ achievement on tests. It also appeared that achievement in EFL teaching methodology courses through assessing Microsoft Teams' effectiveness in students' achievement appeared not to have been addressed. Therefore, this study aimed at assessing the effectiveness of the platform in student teachers' achievement of an EFL Teaching Methods I course offered at the Faculty of Education, Suez Canal University, Egypt, as well as the students’ perceptions of the platform. The study adopted a quasi-experimental approach comprising an experimental group teaching via the platform and another in the traditional face-to-face method. Thirty-two third-year student participants training to be future teachers were involved in the study, forming an equal student number in both groups (n. 16). The study designed and administered an achievement pretest-posttest and a student perception form. Results indicated that the platform was effective in the achievement of the EFL Teaching Methods I course at the experimental group level. It proved even more effective than the traditional method at the experimental-control levels. The participants reported they were generally in favor of the platform. Reasons included the platform utilization of interactive tasks, such as chat rooms, content-sharing, webinars, files, calls, email communication, class notebook, calendars, assignments, and emojis featured by the platform. The study recommends that knowledgeable instructors who are skillful at using the platform capabilities should make a difference in students’ learning reflected by their students’ significant achievement and perceptions.
