Abstract

The use of technology and contemporary methodologies has resulted in significant changes in the development and enhancement of education standards in the higher education system in the last decade. The pandemic of the Corona Virus (Covid-19) has had an impact on many sectors of life across the world, including economy, vocations, culture, schooling, etc. For the protection of students, most schools and institutions have been closed. Then, in order to keep education continuing, many schools and institutions turned to e-learning. However, in Pakistan, many lecturers/teachers and students are still unfamiliar with this teaching/learning method. This research study planned for investigating two Pakistani context universities, i.e., Mehran University of Engineering and Technology and University of Sindh's ESL on their teachers' attitude towards implementing and using CALL in their English language teaching, their present employments of CALL applications in their teaching and challenges they experience while executing CALL in their teaching to get a general picture of CALL usage in this particular setting. Data was collected through a teacher-based survey questionnaire webbed to 40 EFL teachers (n=40), and then it was analysed by SPSS. The questionnaire consisted of five-Likert items. Each item of the question consisted of sub-items and elements with the help of those elements which the researchers got an accurate picture of answers for their research questions. Findings revealed that ESL teachers of the concerned universities held positive perspectives towards utilising CALL in their teaching of English, and there were no noteworthy contrasts in teachers' perspectives that can be credited to gender or academic levels. They saw CALL as a facilitating tool in encouraging language learning, increasing their motivation level, and helping them acquire skills.

Abstract

This qualitative case study examines the constraining effects of the internet connectivity to English language teaching communities migrated to online instruction during/ after the COVID-19 pandemic based on the teacher’s beliefs in the Philippines’ context. The paper also explores the innovative English teaching strategies, needed personal qualities, and framework for the teacher's innovative teaching to navigate their way in delivering instruction under alternative modalities. Through the focus group discussion employing a validated open-ended interview guide as an instrument for data gathering, information was processed through codes and coding techniques outlined by Miles and Huberman (1994) along with the aid of a licensed NVivo 12 software in order to examine the teachers’ beliefs on creativity, as well as their personal qualities and how these variables are transformed into innovative offline English teaching strategies. Findings reveal that the five emerging underlying themes on the teachers’ beliefs about creativity translated into innovative English teaching strategies for offline instruction are learnability, non-exclusivity, essentiality, physical context dependency, and non-physical context dependency. Moreover, there are also five developing significant COVID-19 personal qualities for English teachers that were found, including being creative, optimistic, versatile, inventive, and devoted. These findings became cornerstones of the innovative offline English language teaching framework that can be used as a practical guide in academic communities worldwide where internet connectivity is not dependable for online instruction.

Abstract

Conscientiousness and self-regulated learning have been shown to directly impact students’ academic performance; however, whether or not such impact persists in the COVID-19 pandemic era requires further examination. Thus, this study aimed to investigate the association between conscientiousness, self-regulated learning and students' English language performance and examine the mediating effect of self-regulated learning in the relationship between conscientiousness and English language performance during the COVID-19 pandemic. By employing non-probability snowball sampling, 138 first and second-year undergraduate students enrolled at the University of Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah, Fez, Morocco, participated in the study by completing a 21-item questionnaire. Using linear regression, the study found a statistically significant relationship between conscientiousness and self-regulated learning [F (1, 136) = 77.41, p < .001, R2 = .37]. Next, a multiple regression analysis was conducted and revealed that while self-regulated learning significantly predicted English language final grades (β = .41, p < .001), conscientiousness was not a significant predictor (β = .14, p > .001). A Sobel test was performed and showed that self-regulated learning was able to mediate the relationship between conscientiousness and English language grades (p < .001). The study concludes that although conscientious students are driven by their diligent work habits, those who lacked effective self-regulated learning strategies received lower grades in their English language class. Hence, educators must concentrate much of their efforts on helping students develop efficient self-instruction, self-monitoring, and self-evaluation techniques that can propel learners into achieving their academic goals.

Abstract

The core of this paper is to employ the Matrix Language Frame (MLF) model on Urdu-English clausal-internal switching to identify whether the Matrix Language Frame model potentially accounts for the bilingual linguistic competence efficiently. For this, a qualitative methodology has been adopted for this study. For empirical evidence, data has been taken from eighty Urdu- English bilinguals within a naturalistic setting after categorizing them into four groups, and each group has 20 participants. After conducting audio-recording through non-participant interviews in an informal setting, the collected data was transcribed. The MLF model posited that two languages are fused in a single Intra-CP of a mixed string. The linearly dominant language is Matrix language (ML) that incorporates only late outsider system morphemes. Odd is Embedded language (EL) that supplies content morphemes satisfying the system morpheme principle (SMP) uniformly and morpheme order principle (MOP). The present study ubiquitously scrutinizes that naturalistic data of Urdu-English bilinguals highlights the innovative results: it predicts that Matrix language (ML) is unidentified in intra-CP, no late outsider system morphemes linearize a code-switched sentence, unparalleled constituent and clausal structure, System Morpheme Principle (SMP) and Morpheme Order Principle (SMP) provides the illegitimate output and computes ungrammatical sentences hence; the Matrix Language Frame model redundantly and inconsistently accounts for Urdu-English naturalistic data and its principles have failed to compute Urdu-English naturalistic data.
