Abstract

This present study explores parents’ motivation in having their children enrolled at international school or bilingual school and teachers or educators’ motivation in providing English as the medium of instruction in the school. In addition, this study also examines the ecology that parents (n=14) and teachers (n=26) provide for children to develop their L2 proficiency (both at home and at school). This study is rooted in the framework of qualitative research. Moreover, the data were taken from online asynchronous computed mediated interview using structured-interview. Interview items for parents and teachers is adapted from Gardner’s [1] Attitude Motivation Test Battery (AMTB) and from Dewi [2]. Interview data were analyzed based thematic analysis, looking at the emerging themes from data. This study revealed that parents’ motivations for enrolling children in bilingual or international school were more integrative than instrumental. English as a lingua franca within the context of multicultural world has motivated parents and teachers to introduce English at the early education. Bilingual approach was found effective in English delivery system for social and cultural consideration. As part of the efforts of responding to the digital era, both parents and teachers bring multimodal sources (technology-based sources) in enhancing English learning.
