Abstract

Attitudes are one of the success factors in speaking and learning the English language. The study aims to determine the attitudes of high school students towards speaking and learning the English language. The study utilized a descriptive-correlational design. There were 266 high school students enrolled in public secondary high school selected through a stratified and systematic sampling techniques. The study utilized an adopted survey questionnaire from Canceran and Temporal (2020) and Al Noursi (2013). Findings revealed that students realized speaking in English is important for their future job. Additionally, realizing the importance of learning English highly fostered the interest of high school students. Thus, the study revealed that high school students have a positive attitude toward speaking and learning the English language. Also, findings revealed that there is a negligible correlation between speaking attitudes and learning attitudes of high school students towards the English language. Furthermore, the study revealed that there is no significant relationship between the attitudes of high school students towards speaking and learning the English language. This indicated that the speaking and learning attitudes of the high school students had no relevance towards the English language. The study suggests that school may provide co-curricular English activities and language -related programs that will make the students improve and be interested in English, thus, providing fun learning English activities will make the students more positive and comfortable to study with.
