Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate high school students' current perception of English language learning in relation to the new language teaching approach adopted recently. An attempt has been made to examine how high school students perceive the nature of language, the functions of an English language teacher and their own role as language learners. The study involved 200 grade 11 students. The major instruments in this study were questionnaire and interview. The questionnaire contained 24 items which were classified into four groups. To consolidate the information obtained through the questionnaire, interviews were also conducted with the sampled students. The study showed that most of the sampled students seemed to hold traditional perception of language learning. The study revealed that the students assessed more positively their perception of the nature of language, the functions of the language classrooms, their teacher's role and their own roles in the traditional approaches than in the more current ones.
