Abstract

My study aims to explore foreign language planning and policy in Saudi schools, by examining the influences on foreign language planning and policy in the country (e.g. the government). Also, by examining the effects of foreign language planning and policy on Saudi schools, students and community. A theoretical framework of foreign language planning (FLP), which is based on Cooper’s (1989) “language as decision making” framework, will be employed in the study to support the data analysis process. Data will be gathered using qualitative questionnaires, focus groups as well as semi-structured interviews, and analysed using aspects of Charmaz’s (2006) constructive grounded theory.
