- Interest and ways of learning are nearly not ever an important alarm when analyzing English learning needs. Moreover, research on the relationship between interests, ways of learning, and learning needs has certainly not been checked in depth in forecasting English learning for Specific Purposes (ESP). This study aims to explore the relationship between interests, ways of learning, and learning needs, especially in midwifery students at University of Muhammadiyah Gresik. This study uses three questionnaires about interest, ways of learning, and learning needs, which were distributed to 45 respondents of midwifery students, where the results of the three questionnaires were analyzed using the Spearman Rank Correlation. The results revealed that there was a strong relationship between interests and ways of learning with a value of r = 0.773, but there was a low relationship between interests and learning needs where r = 0.240, as well as ways of learning with learning needs, namely r = 0.289. Thus, interest and ways of learning are two perfecting variables to sustain learning success. Although the two are not directly attached to learning needs, they are still prominent to take notice in the context of classroom planning, as well as being very convenient and auxiliary facts when designing ESP teaching.
