I found that English should be practiced since school as teachers have plenty of time to teach them to communicate in English. However, English should be balanced between writing and speaking as both of the skills are important for the future; university life and career. Another way to enforce the employees to communicate using English can be conducted by the employers. They should have taken opportunities to raise the employees’ awareness.

CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION A. BACKGROUND OF RESEARCH English language is increasingly becoming an important lingua franca which is used in business, technological and academic communication (Dawit & Abiy, 2013). This trend of English globalization has made it imperative for graduates to be proficient in oral communication skills since competence in oral communication (in listening and speaking) is a prerequisite to students’ academic, personal and professional success in life. Oral communication competence can contribute to individuals’ social adjustment and participation in satisfying interpersonal relationship (Sherwyn, Michael & Judy, 2000). Effective use of English as a second language (ESL) or foreign language (EFL) in oral communication is, without a doubt, one of the most common, but also highly complex activities people need to learn for their interpersonal communication.
Therefore, the enthusiasm for mastering English also goes down accordingly. People like this have considered English as one of the main subjects of exam, and their main purpose of learning English is to pass examinations. Nevertheless, there are still many people firmly believing the significance of learning English. Hence, what attitude should people adopt towards
Introduction To be a successful learner of English language, the learners need to use instruments to force them while their continuous process which helps them concentrate until become to be a successful learner. Motivation is one factor which has also played a significant role while the learners are studying English. In the early work of Gardner (1985) motivation is defined as the extent to which the individual strives to acquire the language because involves the learners’ reason for attempting to acquire the target language. Related Background Nowadays, English language has become a very important global language because it widely used as a means of international communications.

Gardner (1985, p.83) has rightly observed that, “Based on the literature review and considering all the issues involved, it seems clear that achievement in a second language is influenced by attitudinal / motivational characteristics”. Dorneyi (2004, p. 273) also agreed to this by claiming “motivation is one of the main determinants of second/ foreign language (L2) learning achievement.” My assumption was that the students of CSE, IT and ECE branch would show high indices of motivation to learn English, since their field requires more interaction in English language. On the contrary the students of Mechanical and Civil branch would be less motivated to study English language as there was not any good reason to do so because their field of work does not require much fluency in English language. So in this chapter, I have included many definitions of motivation and attitudes, as well as
So British pronunciation is the acceptable correct pronunciation in English Second Language. The overall aim of teaching English Second Language is to develop learners’ communicative skills for meaningful interaction in the multicultural society. Therefore, English need conscious attention specifically on pronunciation of words, not just a concern to English teachers but all subject teachers. Thus, responsibility is required to assist learners, so that they could be able to read words correctly or effectively in all subjects. During my SBS experience, the researcher observed learners reading words with wrong pronunciations or mispronouncing some words.
A lot of international companies preferred hiring Filipinos in this line of work for they believe that Filipinos are effective in communicating with different races because of its knowledge on English language. An article published in Japan states the author’s personal insights on Filipino’s adaptation to its secondary language of the country. She said that English was brought to the Philippines during the 1896-1946 American occupation and it still enjoys official status. This does not mean that everyone understands or speaks English, but it does mean that exposure to the language is so widespread that those who do speak it can communicate quite fluently. She was also impressed that people who had never stepped outside the Philippines were nevertheless fluent in English.
