Ana Fernández-Viciana, Alberto Fernández-Costales

Abstract

This paper reports on an original research on teacher efficacy and the perceived linguistic training of students of the Degree in Primary Education (English stream) in a Spanish university. The research relies on a sample of 4 students answered a 21-item interview. The results show students report a low language self-efficacy in the case of students with levels below B2. Students demand more attention should be paid to the learning of the L2 in their degrees and they are clearly influenced by the way their learned the foreign language at school.
