Learning a foreign language improves
cognitive abilities, personality, job prospects, global
knowledge, communication skills, creativity, and
cultural engagement. English is essential for global
understanding and communication, especially among
ESL students in Cambodia. A positive attitude towards
learning languages is crucial for personal and
professional success, impacting language performance.
The study aims to explore the extent of attitudes of
primary-level students toward learning the English
language. Moreover, the author determined whether
there is any difference between male and female students
regarding their attitudes toward learning English.
According to feedback from English primary students
studying in Poipet Town, Banteay Meanchey Province,
Cambodia, there is strong support for learning English
language skills to pursue international education. The
high rankings of value items 13 and 5 emphasize
English's significance, which supports this sentiment.
These rankings suggest that the students are profoundly
aware of the worldwide significance of English language
proficiency. Additional findings of the research
demonstrate that there is no statistically significant
disparity in the extent of attitudes between males and
females, as evidenced by an F value of 1.11 and a p-value
(P =.30). Future studies similar to this topic should be
conducted with a larger number of samples in different
