20201016T1530 20201016T1600 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh Perceptions of High School Language Teachers in Gia Lai Province, Vietnam Towards Their English Language Proficiency

With the implementation of the National Foreign Languages Project (Project 2020), high school language teachers are required to achieve CEFR-C1 level as professional standards. So far, most high school teachers nationwide, have attended many training workshops and achieved the CEFR-C1 level as professional standards. High school English language teachers in Gia Lai province, Vietnam have been no exception. This study aims to reveal high school language teachers' perceptions in Gia Lai province towards their English language proficiency after attending the training workshops held by the Project 2020. Questionnaires and interviews were employed as the main instrument tools for collecting data. Data were analyzed utilizing descriptive statistics to run for percentages and frequencies. The result of the study shows that a majority of the participant teachers (92.8%) contended that their level of language proficiency well improved. Only a few of the respondents (7.2%) claimed that their proficiency remained the same after the training. It is encouraging that high school language teachers in Gia Lai province were fully aware of their professional responsibilities in mastering and actualizing their language proficiency. The study suggests that geographical and motivational traits should be taken into consideration when designing training workshops.
