English Learning and Cultural Recognition among Mongolian College Students—Case Studies among Mongolian English Majors in IMUN

Ji-Nan Jia


Through the questionnaire and interview, this paper carries out research on the Mongolian English majors in Inner Mongolia University for the Nationalities (IMUN), and these research studies are designed to reflect their recognition of their native culture and the English culture after they started to learn English. Results indicate that Mongolian English majors in IMUN have preserved and inherited the traditions in their native culture and showed recognition of the cultural identity of their ethnic group. At the same time, some influences from the English culture have also managed to seep into their behavioral and thinking patterns gradually. They show positive attitudes towards both their native culture and the English culture in terms of language learning and cultural inheritance and protection.
