Abstract: Abstract: This study examined the effect of the integration of the problem-based learning (PBL)
approach in English courses on Chinese-speaking university students‟ willingness to
communicate (WTC). This study also examined whether there were possible differences in
learners‟ WTC in terms of the gender variable. Two English classes in a Taiwanese
university were randomly assigned to the PBL and teacher-lectured (TL) conditions. The
PBL group with 43 participants received the PBL instruction in small group settings, whereas
the TL group with 45 participants was fully provided with interpretations of teaching
materials by the instructor and completed the tasks individually. The WTC scale, including
seven subscales, was administered after the treatment. The results of two-way multivariate
analysis of variance revealed that the PBL group significantly outperformed the TL group on
the friend subscale, while the TL group demonstrated significant main effects on WTC
subscales in terms of the gender variable.
