Abstract

The number of Generation Z English Language (EL) learners in institutions of higher education has been increasing, so it has become significant for EL teachers to understand the features and learning preferences of Generation Z EL learners to meet their needs and teach English to them effectively. This descriptive study which was conducted with 888 Generation Z EL learners and whose data were collected through a questionnaire aims to contribute to this understanding of EL teachers by finding out the features and EL learning preferences of Generation Z EL learners. The findings indicated that Generation ZEL learners commonly use technological devices such as smartphones, which generally have an internet connection, are generally online, generally prefer to study English alone, and prefer videos that are used more for learning English.

Keywords
