Abstract

This study was motivated by data revealing that decision making upon learning objectives were taken merely from curriculum and syllabus review, while students' preferences towards their needs in learning was neglected. Therefore, this study is aimed to find out students' needs in studying English as a foreign language. Questionnaire and semi standardized interview under qualitative approach were administered to 32 seventh graders and 2 English teachers. The findings came up that students' motive in learning English was mainly to travel abroad. Furthermore, they perceived that their listening and writing skills were lower than the other skills. They also found difficulties in learning as coming from the unpleasant facilitation. In addition, they preferred to learn English in group. This study is expected to give more preferences to teachers in deciding upon what skills should be emphasized and what learning styles and teaching methods will better be applied in teaching and learning.
