- Mainland students in China, reticence, learners’ habitual behavior, questionnaire study
- The research efforts aiming at changing the phenomenon of Chinese students’ reticence should be based on a full understanding of the various causes behind it. It has been revealed in this paper through questionnaire study that the seeming reticence is more likely to be the performance of learners’ habitual classroom behavior resulting from the traditional learning environment, rather than the consequence of any inherent disposition of Chinese learners themselves. Accordingly, classroom reticence can be changed if the learning environment alters.
