Abstract

A Globalized world demands for a communication channel through which better opportunities are going to be available for ones who fit in its profile, the language that got on this position is English and in consequence the English proficiency, the ability in language use (Bachman, 1990) plays an important role for students who pretend to get in a better life style in this new order. Some factors are going to make a remarkable influence during the teaching learning process for students to get English as foreign language, the main one is motivation; Gardner (1985) motivation is seen as ‘referring to the extent to which the individual works or strives to learn the language because of a desire to do so and the satisfaction experienced in this activity. In similar way, Brown (1980) opines that attitude is the way that you think and feel about something; these together with other variable factors may affect or significantly contribute to language learning students´ process. Language-related extra-curricular activities in universities are an excellent tool to motivate language learners and help them by providing an additional milieu for language practice. Learners in Canada and Russia report a positive impact of ECAs on all the language skills, on building confidence, developing speaking and communication skills. The learners also find that ECA participation helps to overcome shyness and nervousness (Apples – Journal of Applied Language Studies Vol. 11, 1, 2017, 59).
