Abstract:
In this paper we are releasing the results of an interview conducted with 30 first-year students in the Spanish Department at Fu Jen University (Taiwan) at the beginning of 2013. The said interview includes 20 items related to several aspects of the foreign language learning process, such as school subjects, materials used in the classroom, students’ use of Spanish at present and in the future, etc. The data gathered at the interview show that Taiwanese students are perfectly aware of which subjects, learning activities, learning materials, and teaching methods best suit their interests and needs. This research aims at finding out to what extent our teaching offer is liable to match our students’ expectations.
