Abstract

Abstract The aim of this article is to describe the influence of out-of-school English language learning on academic achievement in Kazakhstani high schools. English language acquisition plays a pivotal role in Kazakhstan, as English is not only an international communication language, but also the foreign language for obligatory study in state schools and higher education. Approximately 130 representatives of various ethnic groups populate Kazakhstan, thus it is considered as the multi religious and multiethnic state. Currently, the society development is altering Kazakhstan from bilingual to multilingual , integrating Kazakh, Russian and English languages into the educational system embedding policy of multilingualism at state schools all over the country. However, second language learners tend to demonstrate poor performance and low average points in foreign language examinations. Factors affecting low performance in school and entrance exams, the trend among students preferring private and extracurricular foreign language teaching for various educational purposes will be considered in this paper. Study is going to dissect the relationship between extracurricular foreign language learning and poor performance at state schools. Flaws in the educational system and methods of teaching in public schools and the benefits and positive impact of private education will be discussed in a future paper. This article is the systematic review of the scientific literature related to poor performance in EFL at schools and influence of out-of-school learning to academic performance of high school students.
