Abstract

This research project was carried out to observe the perceptual mismatch sources related to language learning in the students of the Intensive Intermediate English II in the Foreign Language Department focused on the B.A in English Teaching. It was intended to find out whether exists or not perceptual mismatch related to language learning and if it exists to what extend is relevant in the students´ learning process. The theory for this study comes from the different teaching approaches that emerged in the XX century up to what is now the post method condition proposed by B. Kumaravadivelu. It was pretended to verify to what extent those sources of perceptual mismatch affected the learning process of the English Language as a foreign tongue in the sample population. In the same way to find out how much the incumbent teachers in the FLD were aware of these perceptual mismatches related to language learning in their regular classes. For this research project, a mixed research method was implemented to take into account measurable and immeasurable data (objective and subjective). Researchers observed the classes during 1 month and a half; as well, it was provided a questionnaire to find out the general background from students, an interview was carried out for teachers in charge of those chosen groups, pictures were taken from some of the class activities and a checklist was elaborated for the observation. A descriptive study was applied in order to analyze the variables that interacted in this description between the incidence of perceptual mismatches related to language learning and how the English Intermediate English courses are affected by it. With this project, the research team attempted to discover what sources of perceptual mismatch are more visible among the students of Intensive Intermediate English II in the Foreign Language Department at the University of El Salvador.
