The Attitudes of Students toward Native and Nonnative English Teachers locus of control and attitude toward seeking counseling help
This book reports the findings of an investigation into the attitudes of university students in Hong Kong towards native and nonnative teachers of English at six Hong Kong universities, in terms of the teachers'' pedagogy and knowledge of applied linguistics. The data was collected over twelve months, by means of questionnaire surveys, interviews, field notes, classroom observations, and post-classroom-observation interviews. The findings show that most students preferred to study with the native teachers of English. Others did not show any preference towards the native teachers of English or the nonnative teachers of English. Nevertheless, no students expressed that they would prefer to have the nonnative teachers of English. The results of this study provide two important pedagogical implications: Students should be made aware of the Hong Kong accented English, and the importance of intelligibility of English. The book is addressed to graduate students and researchers in education and social science, particularly those who are interested in the issue of native and nonnative teachers of English.

Seeking Eden locus of control and attitude toward seeking counseling help
Seeking Eden is the final chapter of Ann Turnbull’s long-awaited Quaker trilogy. Will and Susanna Heywood (No Shame, No Fear and Forged in the Fire), now in their thirties, move, with their four children, to Pennsylvania, where freedom of religious thought is everyone’s right. This is the story of their eldest child, Josiah, who finds work with George Bainbrigg in the dock area of Philadelphia and falls in love with his daughter, Kate. When they travel to Barbados on business and stay with Friends who are harassed by local laws, Josiah is shocked to learn that Quakers have slaves and that his boss deals in the slave trade. Once they return home, Josiah and Kate try to help two slaves who are in love, Antony and Patience, to attain their freedom – knowing the risks involved may result in lives that are even more unbearable.

Onward Toward What We're Going Toward locus of control and attitude toward seeking counseling help
Set over the last half of the twentieth century, Onward Toward What We're Going Toward is the epic story of the decline and fall of an American family. Postwar newlyweds Chic and Diane Waldbeeser are determined to carve out a life for themselves and their son, Lomax, in Middleville, Illinois. But when ten-year-old Loxax dies, Chic and Diane take refuge in religion, haiku poetry, doll collecting, food and bowling as they try to make sense of their overwhelming grief and guilt. Meanwhile Chic's older brother, Buddy, struggles to make a life with his exotic, naive wife Lijy - who is hiding a devastating secret of her own - while attempting to introduce the residents of Middleville to vegetarianism and Ayurveda. (An unusual endeavour in mid-century Middle America.) Onward Toward What We're Going Toward is a bittersweet paean to failed lives and missed opportunities, and a deeply heartfelt and gloriously funny dissection of the American Dream.

TOWARD THE END OF TIME locus of control and attitude toward seeking counseling help
Set in the near future of 2020, this disconcerting philosophical fantasy depicts an America devastated by a war with China that has left its populace decimated, its government a shambles, and its natural resources tainted. Its hero is Ben Turnbull, a sixty-six-year-old retired investment counselor, who, like Thoreau, sticks close to home and traces the course of one Massachusetts year in his journal. Something of a science buff, he finds his disrupted personal history has been warped by the disjunctions and vagaries of the "many-worlds" hypothesis derived from the indeterminacy of quantum theory. His identity branches into variants extending back through the past and forward into the evolution of the universe, as both it and his own mortal, nature-haunted existence move toward the end of time.

Attitudes toward Kenyan English locus of control and attitude toward seeking counseling help
This book exposes some attitudes toward Kenyan English pronunciation. Pronunciation in second language varieties are influenced by first language patterns, which are also termed ethnically-marked varieties in Kenya. From the more than forty two ethnic groups (regionally demarcated) in the Republic, more than half including the larger groups participated in the exercise. The research instruments utilised were a guided interview and the verbal guise technique alongside a questionnaire. The data was later corded and plotted in MS-Excel and R for statistical procedures. Intriguing results found within this study have profound implications for the teaching of pronunciation to speakers of non-native varieties of English; acknowledging that phonological cognition enables listeners to cope with variability in speech.
