Abstract: This study investigates Iranian guidance school students’ attitudes towards learning English language prior to and after applying consciousness- raising activities and tasks for teaching grammatical structures in terms of the behavioral, cognitive and emotional aspects. It also explores whether there is any significant difference in the students’ attitudes towards learning English language regarding their gender. A total of fifty one participants including twenty eight males and twenty three females in two different guidance s schools in Zahedan, Iran, were given Gardner’s attitude questionnaire as an instrument. Regarding the three aspects of attitude i.e., cognitive, behavioral, and emotional, the participants showed no different attitudes towards learning English language prior to and after applying the consciousness- raising activities and tasks in these aspects. On the demographic profile, there were also no statistically significant attitudinal differences regarding gender. Thus, based on the research findings, some recommendations are finally offered./L/Keywords: Attitude, Consciousness- Raising Activities and Tasks, EFL Learner, English Language.
