A Study on the Validity of the English Learning Style Scale for Korean High School Students in a Native Teacher’s Class Based on Multimedia
Nayu Kim, Heechul Lee
The purpose of this study is to investigate the characteristics of English learning styles of students who participated in a native speaker’s English class based on multimedia. To achieve this goal, one hundred and four high school students took part in this study and responded to a questionnaire surveying their English learning styles. A factor analysis was conducted based on students’ responses, and five English learning styles were extracted. In the native speaker’s class, students were found to have a class immersion style, focusing actively on the class procedure with higher self-confidence, a self-expression style, wanting to show their own thoughts and expressions, a goal recognition style, focusing on recognition and performance of clear goals, a systematic dependence style, expecting clear teaching and evaluation methods, and an information orientation style, actively collecting and using information learned in class. Reflecting on these learning styles, English teachers and co-teachers should prepare creative learning materials based on a systematic lesson plan for students to be absorbed in the class and to participate in class with self-efficacy. In addition, the teacher should consider ways in which students gather and use information related to the topic of the lesson and provide enough opportunities for students to speak in English.
