Desafíos y estrategias de los estudiantes universitarios en las clases de enseñanza media en inglés (EMI): un estudio de caso

Resumen

El inglés se ha convertido en la lengua franca del mundo actual. Como resultado, incluso los países europeos y asiáticos que no hablan inglés utilizan el inglés como medio de instrucción. A pesar de su gran diversidad lingüística y el urdu como idioma de instrucción a nivel escolar, el inglés siempre ha sido el medio de instrucción en la educación superior en Pakistán. Este estudio explora las perspectivas de los estudiantes universitarios sobre la instrucción en inglés medio, los desafíos que enfrentan en las clases de inglés medio y las estrategias que proponen para aliviar los problemas. Según los datos cualitativos adquiridos a través de entrevistas semiestructuradas, los estudiantes ven la instrucción en inglés como una ventaja para la educación superior, los trabajos y el pensamiento progresista. Sin embargo, la competencia en inglés de los profesores, el cambio de código, el vocabulario y las habilidades receptivas y productivas les crean algunos obstáculos. Creen que los profe sores con conocimientos de inglés, el uso constante del inglés y el apoyo lingüístico de la universidad pueden ayudarlos a superar estos obstáculos.
