Considering the vital role that the English language plays in contemporary society and the changing needs of institutions around the world, gaining a thorough knowledge of English can help people in a number of ways. The primary aim of this research is therefore to identify the levels of knowledge of English and attitudes towards learning English among Saudi students at the Globe English institute, Exeter, UK. To achieve this aim, a structured questionnaire is designed in order to gather related data from a sample of 30 respondents, comprising 17 male and 13 female students. This study seeks to establish the relationship between knowledge of English, attitude towards learning English, and demographic factors such as the age, gender, and major of respondents. According to the survey findings, it may be stated that there is a significant favourable relationship between knowledge of English and attitude of respondents towards learning the English language. The identified statistical results will be discussed as they pertain to the preceding literature.

موجز عن البحث:

This paper is concerned with investigating the integration of quantitative and qualitative data in mixed methods research and whether, in spite of its challenges, it can be of positive benefit to many investigative studies. The paper introduces the topic, defines the terms with which this subject deals and undertakes a literature review to outline the challenges and benefits of employing this approach to research. The specific terms research, educational research, research methodologies and methods, research design, quantitative approaches, qualitative approaches and mixed methods approaches are all defined. Mixed methods approaches are outlined in terms of their challenges and benefits, with the researcher offering a personal opinion in conclusion to the paper. The conclusion that was drawn was that provided that mixed methods research was a suitable approach to any given project, its use would yield positive benefits, in that the use of differing approaches has the potential to provide a greater depth and breadth of information which is not possible utilising singular approaches in isolation. In spite of its time-consuming nature, and the suspicion with which some quarters of academia still regard mixed methods research, it does afford opportunities for researchers to have an informed conversation or debate involving information that is generated by both quantitative and qualitative collection methods. Furthermore, evidence would suggest that, rather than restricting the opportunities for research by only utilising either qualitative or quantitative methods, a mixed methods approach provides researchers with a greater scope to investigate educational issues using both words and numbers, to the benefit of educational establishments and society as a whole.

موجز عن البحث:

The majority of pilgrims do not speak Arabic and may encounter difficulties performing Hajj in terms of appropriate procedures and places due to their unfamiliarity. Most pilgrims are there for the first time. Researchers and practitioners have sought to develop mobile-based applications to assist pilgrims in various tasks such as finding their way and avoid becoming lost, and to perform Hajj procedures properly based on guides on their mobiles. Among the developed applications, a few are based on augmented reality. Many remain in the research phase. However, the problem with many augmented-based applications developed for Hajj is the lack of user acceptance investigation before implementation. This study found that the applications developed for Hajj practices based on augmented reality lacked user acceptance test. This study proposes a model for user acceptance for mobile augmented reality applications developed for Hajj. It found that pilgrims’ motivations to use this type of application were ease of use and enjoyment, with little focus on its utility. This result is interpreted as meaning that the participants have yet to appreciate the utility of mobile augmented applications.

An Explanatory Mixed Methods Study Of The Use Of Educational Blogs To Improve EFL Student's Writing Skills 

ملخص المشاركة:

The goal of this study is to investigate the content of the preparatory year programme (PYP) students’ blog entries, and to track the improvement of their writing once they have spent fourteen weeks blogging in English. A further aim is to gauge their perceptions of affordances of blogging as a tool to learning English as a foreign language in Taif university, Saudi Arabia. In this investigation, two groups of preparatory year programme (PYP) control group and experimental group. Experimental group students studying in Taif university will be selected to take part in a blogging programme lasting for fourteen weeks. During this time, students will create a blog account where they will write about the things they like to share with their peers, such as social commentary, daily activities, sport, fashion etc. The opinions of these students will also be assessed to determine and how participation in the blogging process has affected their attitudes to learning English as a foreign language. Also, the control group students studying in Taif university will be selected to take part in this study, will be instructed by the traditional methods in writing EFL classes. The discoveries of this research have the potential to assist Saudi education policy makers in implementing the best ways to teach English as a foreign language, will provide insights into the potential impact of that a relatively new form of writing, blogging may have on writing development and attitudes to learning, particularly within public educational institutions. The conclusions will give educators and educational researchers sufficient information regarding learning a foreign language using blogging in the context of the Middle Eastern or Arab world, as most of previous research has been made in American, Western, and East Asian environments.
