Chinese Abstract

本研究透過自行編製之問卷,探討大學英語主修生暑期學習英語之經驗與看法,同時探究其經驗與看法是否存在部別、年級或性別上的差異。研究發現包括:(一)大多數英語主修生皆有從事暑期英語學習,但多未經規畫,且學習頻率與時間偏低;(二)暑期學習英語之動機主要為提升英語能力、準備英檢考試以及個人興趣;(三)暑期之英語學習多偏向聽與讀之運用,且以娛樂型之學習活動為主;(四)大多數學生認為暑期的英語學習應由自己主導,不贊成由教師規定暑期作業;(五)大多數學生贊同暑期是學習英語之好時機,也認為應英系學生應於暑期從事英語學習;(六)年級與暑期學習英語的頻率顯著相關,而部別與性別則與對暑期學習英語之看法呈現相關。上述發現顯示大學英語主修生仍缺乏自主學習能力,應加強培養暑期英語自學動機,並強化英語學習資源與方法之運用能力。據此,本研究提出具體建議予教師、學生及未來相關研究做為參考。

English Abstract

The purposes of this research were to investigate college English majors' experiences and perceptions of learning English during summer vacations, and to determine if any differences regarding students' experiences and perceptions exist between school divisions, among years in college, and between genders. A self-designed questionnaire was used to collect data from all English majors at a technological university. The results indicate that most of the English majors lacked learner autonomy, despite a generally positive attitude toward vacation English learning and a preference for self-direction. Suggestions are given for teachers to help enhance students' English learning motivation and abilities to use English learning resources and strategies during summer vacations.
