M.A Thesis English Teaching Methodology -- University of Languages and International studies. Vietnam National University, Hanoi, 2014
English language teaching in a non-native environment has experienced a variety of obstacles, one of which is the interference of English learners’ mother tongue. The impediment is doubled when English is taught in a multi-lingual environment like Vietnam, and this fact forces Vietnamese instructors of English to seek ways of teaching their cohort of minority students effectively. In an attempt to improve of English language teaching in Vietnam, this thesis investigates the possible impacts of Vietnamese Thai on the English written production of Thai students at Thai Nguyen Medical College, with a detailed contrastive analysis of English and Vietnamese Thai which English teachers can use in their practice. The study employed a written production questionnaire, which has been widely accepted as a tool for data collection in an interlanguage study. The results suggest that Thai non-English major students heavily rely on their mother tongue in their English writing. Several suggestions for minimizing the influences of Thai learners’ mother tongue on their English production are provided.
