Mix-method approach (Quantitative and Qualitative) was adopted to answer the research questions and instruments such as survey and interview were used to collect the data. For the quantitative approach, a random sample of 60 students who had enrolled in the AETN course from year four (23 males and 37 females) participated in this study. The correlation and multiple linear regression were used to analyze the data via SPSS package. On the other hand, 5 participants were randomly interviewed. The results of correlation between A, B, C, D and S were r=0.596, 0.579, 0.620, 0.572, p
