Abstract|ملخص البحث

The aim of this study is to make the process of learning English as a foreign language in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in line with the students' own preferences and to make teachers recognize their students' preferences in this regard. In order to look at the teaching process from students' perspective, a survey was conducted using a set of two questionnaires across various secondary schools in the southern region of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Through the first questionnaire, 288 students from different levels of the secondary schools were asked to express their preferences for learning English, and through the second one, 28 teachers responsible for teaching English to the same selection of students were asked to state their opinion about the interest of their students in the learning process. The data, thus acquired, pin point a number of areas in which there is a need for further agreement among the students and teachers. It also gives teachers the opportunity to reorganize their teaching strategies and reshape the classroom activities in accordance with the students' preferences.
