This paper investigates attitudes and perceived experiences of English learning by Chinese kindergarten children, 4-6 years old, and their parents through the use of questionnaires and innovative methods: metaphor analysis and narrative analysis.


The project shows how the use of these methods with children of such young ages is feasible. The findings offer rich data and insights into cognitive, emotional and behavioural aspects of these participants towards English learning in China.
