Abstract


Adolescence is a critical period for adolescents all over the world because this is the time they have to develop an identity. Students who wish to be teachers should not be unsure of their plans. A survey was conducted among future English teachers by using a set of questionnaire adapted from the EOMEIS-2 by Bennion & Adams (1986). The findings of this study are pertinent to the lecturers teaching pre-service English teachers so that they are aware of the identity status of their students. It is also to help them reach identity achievement for a better quality of life.


Keywords: Identity Status; Future Teachers; Gender; Quality of Life.
