Qais S. Ahmadi


The purpose of this action research study is to raise the comfort level of Qatari college students by investigating the phenomenon of 'othering' (stereotyping) in the classroom. The review of the literature helped establish theoretical framework for 'othering'. This study was conducted in the researcher's beginning-intermediate (level 2) classroom in an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program. Data collection sources implemented for this study are interviews for both student and personnel participants, a survey for personnel, and a questionnaire for students.
