Future Teacher Readiness for Integrative Education from the Perspective of English Language Pre-service Teachers

Ivana Cimermanová, Slovakia, ID CLEaR2016-400;         Foreign language learning is an integral and compulsory part of education in Slovakia. The research results show that students with SEN who are integrated in the intact classes tend to face difficulties in foreign language learning (FLL). The study describes the current situation concerning integration of students with SEN and FLL using the official statistical data. Foreign language teachers claim they lack training and where not prepared how to apply teaching methods and techniques for pupils with SEN in the regular language learning class. Teaching itself starts with the preparation of pre-service teachers. The study presents and analyses the results and findings of the research conducted in a group of 56 university FLT students focusing on their attitudes towards integration and their self-efficacy.
