Abstract

Nowadays, learning a foreign language has become an elemental key to be successful as a professional in a society. Therefore the Foreign Languages department in the University of El Salvador has created the major of Modern Languages, specialized in English and French, to cover the demands society brings. This major was implemented in the year 2002 and now it has become one of the most attractive for students. The amount of students increased and the Foreign Languages Department had to face the problem of not counting with enough human and technological resources, as well infrastructure, which has led to various constraints. This brought difficulties to the learners to obtain academic success. Academic success can be defined as the achievement by individuals of objectives related to various types of knowledge and skills. These objectives are socially established based on the age, prior learning and capacity of individuals with regard to education, socialization and qualification. Studies conducted on academic achievement notably focus on student progress and individual, institutional and organizational factors of achievement, along with social relationship interactions that determine, facilitate or hinder academic achievement (CRIRES 2005). But in this research appeared some aspects that were taken into consideration since according to the students they interfered with their academic achievement. The most relevant aspects were divided in four factors: Teachers, Administration, Resources and Students. These were found in the SICEVAES1 (Sistema Centroamericano de Evaluación y Acreditación de la Educación Superior). These factors were not only reinforced with the bibliographic, but also with the information survey results obtained from the students of the tenth semester of Foreign Languages Major. Given the fact that this research is merely bibliographical, only the survey was carried out. All this information will be presented in the following essay.
