20211023T1355 20211023T1425 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh Shifting to the virtual EFL classroom amidst the COVID-19 pandemic: University students’ perception

The COVID-19 pandemic has propelled a sudden boom in online learning on an unprecedented scale. In Vietnam, since the detection of the first COVID-19 case in January 2020, the government has issued directives on the temporary closure of educational institutions nationwide on multiple occasions in response to the COVID-19 outbreaks, prompting an urgent shift from the traditional face-to-face classroom to the virtual classroom. Following suit, since February 2020, the University of Languages and International Studies (ULIS) has implemented e-learning with lectures delivered on streaming platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, together with the assistance of communication tools for classroom management such as Google Classroom and social media. This study aims at exploring students' perception regarding the English language courses conducted online, which are compulsory for first-year and second-year students at Faculty of English Language Teacher Education (FELTE), ULIS. The data were collected via a questionnaire consisting of Likert scale and open-ended questions distributed among over 200 students majoring in English language at FELTE, ULIS. The findings revealed multiple factors affecting students' satisfaction and dissatisfaction with virtual English language lessons, including convenience, learner motivation, technical issues, social interactions and delivery methods. Regardless of some constraints in online learning, the results indicated that students are growing accustomed to the virtual EFL classroom, which has become a necessity amidst the global pandemic.
