Languages of publication
An unwritten rule in many countries says that it is very important or even necessary to know at least one foreign language. Undoubtedly, there are many factors which influence our language acquisition and have been extensively researched in order to ensure that they address the needs of different students. The elements which affect our language abilities are motivation, techniques, methods but also appropriate language strategy. For many years experts have paid attention to the plans that students use in order to achieve results in their study. In their research they have decided to reject the way of study based on particular principles or methods and they have decided to concentrate on students. Moreover, they have started to explore the nature of Language Learning Strategies and the matter how they influence receiving foreign language. The results of their investigations are considered to be the greatest causes in the process of language acquisition, by focusing on differences in language realisation.
