Perceptions of Taiwanese nursing students’ English-language progression following interactive scenario development and role play
Robinson, Carolyn I., Harvey, Theresa M., & Tseng, Monica (2016) Perceptions of Taiwanese nursing students’ English-language progression following interactive scenario development and role play. Contemporary Nurse. (In Press)
Background: The English language has been recognised as an international language, enabling the globalisation of education and work opportunities. An institute in Taiwan has committed to strengthening English teaching by implementing a student-centred teaching and learning activity using role play. In addition, the involvement of a visiting teacher from Australia has been established.
Method: Data collection consisted of a questionnaire that collected qualitative and quantitative data that revealed student perceptions and attitudes towards learning English including nursing terminology, teamwork and communication.
Results: Fifty five of sixty students participating in the activity completed the questionnaire. Students regarded this as a positive experience for learning English, collegiality and teamwork.
Conclusion: This project revealed that students who are not generally exposed to English-speaking people enjoyed this experience. They gained confidence in their ability to learn English in a collegial atmosphere where teamwork and supportive relationships were developed, despite the perception that learning English was difficult.
