Abstract

This research study seeks to study the role of rote learning (RL) in language learning strategies by Chinese EFL students. This research reflects on the culturally aware perceptions of Chinese EFL students about their RL memory techniques' expectations rather than others (MSs). Literature shows that Chinese students of EFL are generally thought to be RL-dependent and passive students. Although recent studies have given new explanations of principles of personality traits in contemporary secular cultures (CHCs), there seems to be no particular or structural inquiry into how and why Chinese students retain their belief. This research study is based on quantitative primary data collected through questionnaires for further data analysis using the smart PLS software to measure the positive psychology perceptive of Chinese EFL learner, all personality traits, and distance from language learning. Descriptive statistics, the one-way ANOVA test, reliability test, and the test of equality measure the results related to Chinese EFL learners and their personality traits from a psychological perspective. The research found that there is a significant and positive relation between EFL learners, personality traits, and distance language learning,  positively impacting the psychological perspectives.
