Abstract

This questionnaire has been prospecting the Romanian learning market for ten years, within the time frame 1999-2009, in an attempt to identify significant dissatisfactions with the traditional instruction framework in the field of foreign languages in engineering. At the same time, it has focused on the proportion of students' options (irrespective of age) for English teaching on web-based platforms, together with the limitations and improvements that may emerge in this domain. It has been connected with European developments from the very beginning, as I participated in a EU funded Leonardo da Vinci program entitled: Recipes for successful e-language teaching, Guidelines for the implementation of effective and dynamic language teaching in ODL environment.
