In the process of becoming a bilingual individual many situations take place that can help or cause difficulties, these situations will affect the successful achievement of the goals. Considering this, people involved in the teaching-learning process must be aware of the variety of factors (advantages-disadvantages) that influence students’ behavior and performance within the language.To explain these factors it was important to remark what is the definition of some terms like bilingualism, mother tongue, second language, cultural understandings, among other areas related with the process of learning a foreign language. Besides that, it was fundamental to cite how these factors work or function on children. The paper contextualizes real situations that occur to children at the moment of learning a foreign language in order to create a picture on reader’s mind of the aspects that affect children either positively or negatively on their own learning process. Moreover, it was important to define both of the terms learning and acquisition in order to make a distinction between them and do not get confuse in how and when is the moment they occur. Aspects such as bilingualism, interpersonal relationships, cultural understanding, self-esteem, self-confidence, economical aspects, socio-cognitive and socio-emotional development, personality, behavior, and interpersonal relationships among others were considered and analyzed with regard to discriminate advantages and disadvantages. Also, to see if both advantages and disadvantages are meaningful on children’s foreign language learning process were consulted within the essay.
