Some Attitudinal Aspects of Foreign Language Learning in Northern Ireland: Focus on Gender and Religious Affiliation

British Journal of Educational Studies 42 (4):388 - 401 (1994)
Abstract
This paper discusses some aspects of foreign language learning within the divided school system of Northern Ireland. It is argued that an improvement of foreign language learning must be seen in a sociocultural context whereby a change in attitudes to languages in general, including Irish, may lead not only to a balanced interest among girls and boys in the language classroom, but also to a more tolerant approach to the cultural differences among the Catholic and Protestant communities.
