THE IMPACT OF ICT USE ON FLL IN DIFFERENT PERSONALITY TYPES




Abstract:
This paper concerns the effect of ICT use in the process of foreign language learning, specifically English, in different learners’ personality types. Our aim is to test whether the use of ICT in English classes, or at home, during students’ primary and secondary education, has had an impact on students’ language proficiency and whether and to what extent that impact has been influenced by students being introverted or extroverted. This small-scale research was carried out at Singidunum University, Centre Niš, on first year students, whose knowledge of English ranges from A1 to B2. From the results obtained, it can be noticed that there is a significant correlation between the personality type and teaching methods in relation to language learning. Furthermore, in terms of frequency and purposes for ICT use, and what they perceive as a good possibility for language improvement, there are differences between male and female students. Most students would not opt for a replacement of a traditional face-to-face contact with ICT. However, since young adults increasingly use ICT for non-educational purposes, it would be irresponsible not to take advantage of that and encourage and teach students to become ICT-oriented when it comes to education, as well.
