Demotivation of English Language Learning among Rural Omani School Students (PP21), Paper
Starting from the fact that social life in cities is different from social life in rural areas, there is a chance that the process of language learning will differ as well. Thus, this study questions the level of motivation to learn English among school students from rural areas. The paper reports on the analysis of local data gathered using three instruments: a questionnaire, interviews and observations based on 90 ninth-grader students from two Omani rural areas.
