Abstract

This study surveyed students’ attitudes towards a Resourcing Task in a Fundamental English Course at King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT). The study looked at the positive factors that influenced their attitudes and the problems that the students encountered during the process of doing such tasks. The subjects were 4 groups of 135 undergraduate students enrolled in a Fundamental English course, Fundamental English II (LNG 102), at KMUTT. The results showed that most subjects had positive attitudes towards the Resourcing Task. The main factor that motivated them to do the task was they had freedom to do what interested them and work freely outside the classroom. However, it was found that the subjects were not prepared in terms of planning or working skills, and some group members did not assist their groups in finishing the task and did not take responsibility for their own work, so they could not finish their work on time. They also had some conflicts among themselves. For these reasons, it can be said that, if the subjects did something that they were interested in and if they were psychologically and methodologically well prepared for the task, they could complete their task successfully.
