초록 Choi, Jin-Sook. (2016). An analysis on the relationship between English skills and Korean skills among the international students. The Linguistic Association of Korea Journal, 24(4), 219-234. This study focuses on investigating whether international students' English skills are related to their Korean skills. For this study, 82 international students English skills and Korean skills were evaluated through the scores of two subjects: English Writing and Korean Vocabulary & Grammar. To raise the level of the validity and reliability of the study, Language Attitudes Questionnaires were distributed to another 102 students. The result of the analysis for English & Korean scores showed that the participants' English skills seem to be related to their Korean skills; the participants with high level of English skills showed a high level of Korean skills, whereas lower achievers in English skills acquired a low level of Korean skills. However, the result of the language attitude questionnaires indicated that the two skills were not related to each other because the participants who had a high level of their perceived English skills demonstrated less favorable attitudes towards Korean than those who had a low level of their perceived English skills. In other words, the participants who had lower subjective English skills showed more positive attitudes towards Korean. On the basis of the results, it is difficult to identify whether there is a relationship between the two skills. However, in accordance with previous studies, the reason for an unclear relationship between the two skills seems due to their low level of mother tongue skills. For a clearer relationship, further study for the participants with a high level of mother tongue skills is required.
