Bringing English Culture to Albanian Language: Biculturalism and its Magnetic Force of Catching Pupils’Attention

Lenida Lekli

Abstract


Foreign language classes are usually considered as the most relaxing and pleasing ones by pupils, not only in the 9th grade system but also in secondary schools. Bilingualism in our schools has always been a source of increasing pupils’ attention versus new interesting facts of other countries. Observations have shown that in foreign language classes (English language in our case), due to a higher level of interest on the side of the pupils versus the new culture provided by the new language, educators have higher possibilities of achieving a better classroom management during the teaching process. How does an English language class attract pupils’ attention? Why is Biculturalism more likely to reduce disruptive behaviors on the side of the pupils? Does an English language teacher have fewer troubles with classroom management? Up to what extend does Biculturalism, provided by second language acquisition, influence the well management of a classroom by the teacher? Certainly the ability of teachers to organize classrooms and manage the behavior of their pupils professionally is critical to achieve positive educational outcomes. Consequently, Biculturalism through foreign languageteaching is as interesting aspect to be considered by teachers aiming to establish positive and motivating teaching environments for their pupils.

Keywords: bilingualism, pupils’ attention, management, biculturalism, outcomes.
