Review of Factors Affecting Second Language Learning

Abstract

This paper is a review of the extent socio-psychological factors can affect second language learning. Socio-psychological factors, like motivations, attitude and stereotyping and neurological factors play an important role in the process of learning a second or foreign language. However, scholarly views differ on how much effect these factors have on second language learning. This paper illustrates the different views towards these socio-psychological factors and their neurological correlations.

Keywords: Motivation, attitude, neurological factors., second/foreign language learning, socio-psychological factors, stereotyping
