Research on the relations among Achievement Goal Setting, Self-efficacy and English Learning Achievement of Engineering Graduate Students: A Structural Equation Modeling Approach
Tian Dong, Ya-Ting Tao, Si-lai Zhang
Page Numbers : 216-223
DOI : 10.36348/sijll.2020.v03i07.002
Achievement goal setting and self-efficacy are two critical variables influencing learning achievements. Many scholars have studied the relationship between two variables by correlation analysis, regression analysis or path analysis. These methods, however, neglect the measurement error at all, which are inconsistent with the reality. Through a questionnaire survey among 266 first-year academic engineering graduate students, this study aims to clarify the relations among achievement goal setting, self-efficacy (SE) and English learning achievement (ELA) of engineering graduate students. Integrating the advantages of conventional statistical methods, Structural Equation Model (SEM) not only takes the measurement error into consideration, but also could study the structures of constructs and the relations among them at same time. The result shows that: 1)Achievement approach goal has a direct positive influence on English learning achievement, mastery approach goal and performance avoidance goal having direct negative influence, and mastery avoidance goal hasn’t obvious influence on English learning achievement; 2) Mastery approach goal has the best impact on self-efficacy, while performance avoidance goal has the worst impact on self-efficacy; 3) Self-efficacy, a mediating variable between achievement goal setting and English learning achievement, could improve English learning achievement efficiently.

This article aims firstly to put up the discursive modalities and speech acts that have a pragmatic value in the text of “The inaugural lesson” by Keba Mbaye. Secondly, it will be a question of analyzing and interpreting the pragmatic value of these speech acts that make successful the communication in terms of persuasion. Thus we will precise the environmental framework of the study. We will inventory and decipher the discursive function of these particular constituent elements of the speech and finally we will put in relation these discursive elements that make persuasive the arguments. The pragmatic approach of communication proposes techniques for the interpretation about what is explicitly or implicitly said and also about the presupposition, will help finding out and analyzing some speech acts from the organizational point of view of the speech. The first part deals with the problematics and offers a presentation of the framework. As for the second part, it focuses on the different discursive mechanisms pointed up by the speaker to accomplish his purpose which is at the same time convincing and persuading the hearers.

DOI : 10.36348/sijll.2020.v03i06.003
The praise for the vigorous natural life is the theme of D. H. Lawrence’s poetry, Birds, Beasts and Flowers. Snake is one of the best poems in this collection of poems which shows an introspection of the relationship between human and nature. This paper aims to analyze the paradoxes and conflicts in Snake and arouse human’s attention to ecology. Many studies on Snake focus on ecological consciousness, the symbolic image of snake, sexual consciousness, religious consciousness and Lawrence’s natural value. However, a few studies pay attention to its ecological ethics, especially the paradoxes and conflicts in this poem. This paper intends to analyze the paradoxical image of snake in traditional concept and Lawrence’s writing, the paradoxical personalities of human in the modern society and the conflicts between anthropocentrism and naturalism.

War Literature: The Kite Runner and What History Cannot Inform
Ms. Racha Dayekh
Page Numbers : 187-195
DOI : 10.36348/sijll.2020.v03i06.004
This paper sheds light on war literature, defining it and highlighting its significance. It also underlines its selective nature as it can magnify, bedim, or even warp certain truths, depending on the perspective from which this literature is delivered. The paper also emphasizes the function of war literature in raising awareness as to the horrors of war and its aftermath as well as its function in promoting peace. Besides, it examines The Kite Runner in this respect. It shows how this novel succeeds in portraying the atrocities of war and its drastic effects long after this war ends. The paper observes how the novel synchronizes the political events with the personal ones in order to show that the war does not only affect those who are directly involved in it but extends to reach the innocent more severely. To underline the parallel between the political and personal events, Husseini employs the rape motif and balances the political turning points with the crucial events at the personal scale. The author also juxtaposes scenes that display the damages of the war with scenes that portray the blissful state before the inauguration of war in order to exhibit the grave impact of war and the irretrievability of this state. Husseini also presents the law of the jungle that becomes prominent during and after the war and exposes the detrimental destruction of the country sites – the destruction that effaces civilizations. The paper also proposes possible topics for future research.
