Kasdi Merbah University- Ouargla (ALGERIA)
The aim of this paper is to investigate students’ attitudes towards literature and to shed light on the importance of this module in learning English. Literature as a module is a part of the English language curriculum at the English Department-University of Ouargla. However, experience and observation show that a number of students do not fully understand what they have learned and they do not know how to appreciate literature accordingly. Therefore, the present paper comes to investigate the attitudes of EFL students at university towards literature courses and whether the teaching techniques used during the EFL class of literature have an impact on their attitudes. The study is carried out in the Department of English at University of Ouargla-Algeria. Findings propose that EFL students at university generally have positive attitudes towards the courses of literature although they are less enthusiastic about the teaching techniques used by teachers.
