Abstract:
Learning and teaching of English language in foreign contexts is usually associated with possible economic gains that it may bring. However, there are other and possibly more immediate implications of such instruction, especially on the way students from Turkish language backgrounds in a private school in the northern part of Cyprus where English is the medium of both instruction and communication perceive English language. The current study investigates students’ attitudes towards this language when it comes to cultural diversity in and outside the classroom. Analysis of the data, which was collected through in-class ethnographic observations, informal chats and interviews with students, showed that students who possessed a higher amount of linguistic abilities in English were also perceived as popular and academically superior by all of the participants in this particular school.
