Dr. Syed Shujaat Ali, Tariq Amin, Shah Khalid.


A quantitative study, based on survey design, analyzed attitudes of students from Afghan Refugees- settled in Pakistan since 1979- towards English and English language learning in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), Pakistan, to determine their success rate and learning level. Out of the population of all such students studying in different educational institutions of KPK, 38 participants were selected through census sampling technique. The data was collected through validated questionnaire based on five point Likert scales and analyzed through computer software, Microsoft Excel and SPSS. Percentages calculated for all the items in questionnaire were then interpreted and explained. It transpired that although they think English to be the language of the terrorist nations, yet they do not think they should dislike it and stop learning it. The results showed that the respondents have positive behavioral, cognitive and emotive attitudes towards English and English language learning which, according to the recommendations, should be utilized by their teachers and parents in motivatingthem to speak English boldly, irrespective of having the fear of making mistakes and feeling shy.

Key words: Attitudes, Learning, English, Afghan Refugees, Foreign Language
