Abstract :The purpose of this paper is to examine effective ways of providing appropriate English education by investigating how first-year students at Niigata Institute of Technology perceive studying English and how they studied English in high school. Analyses of survey data obtained from 97 students who completed a questionnaire revealed the followings: (a) 39% of 61 students who dislike or somewhat dislike English lost interest in studying the subject when they were first-year junior high school students; (b) vocabulary and listening are the most preferred categories of earning English, while grammar, reading, and peaking (English conversation) are the least; (c) most of the students did not acquire appropriate study habits and learning strategies in high school; and (d) the majority of students want to relearn basic English in college. This paper discusses the pedagogical implications of these findings for classroom use.
