本研究旨在探討專科（二、五專）入學新生英文字彙之學習態度（包括學習方法、學習習慣、學習慾望、學習過程及準備考試等五個因素構面），並探討新生對英文之興趣、對英文在未來就業重要性之認知及人口統計變數是否會影響其學習態度。本研究主要之結論如下：1.整體而言，受訪者在學習過程及學習習慣方面表現較佳，而在學習方法方面表現較差。2.聯考入學成績較高的新生在學習方法、學習慾望及準備考試方面均顯著優於成績較低的新生。3.認為英文對其未來就業重要的新生，在英文字彙學習方法、學習慾望及準備考試上顯著優於認為英文對其就業不甚重要的新生。此外、對英文有興趣或很有興趣的新生亦有顯著較佳的表現。最後，本研究亦根據研究之發現，分別對專科英文教師及後續研究者提出建議。 This study investigates the learning attitudes toward English vocabulary for junior college freshmen. Also studied were the influence of their interest toward English, their recognition of the importance of English for future employment, and the influence of demographic items on learning attitudes toward English vocabulary. The major findings of this study are as follows：1. Overall, freshmen performed fairly well in the “learning process”, and “learning customs” categories. However, they perform relatively poorly in “learning method”. 2. Freshmen with high entrance exam scores in English perform better in “learning method”, “learning desire”, and “preparation for exams” than those with low scores. 3. The same situations were also found for freshmen with different recognition levels of the importance of English for future employment or with different levels of interests in English. Finally, we also make some suggestions for junior college English teachers and for future researchers.
