Poland as a land between crossroads of Easter and Western Europe has been influenced a lot by different historical, political and cultural aspects of both, East and West (CNN, 2008). The changes and influences during the last century have been very rapid and are still on- going, increasing. People within one/two generations must have changed and developed their point of view and position in the global society in a very short period of time. Where does their motivation to learn the languages derive from? Is that internal or external motivation or maybe convergence of both. As the first world’s ministry of Education was created in Poland back in 1773 we assume that this country must have strong roots in the importance of education, including language learning. By the processes of Europeanization ones communication skills like knowledge and acquisition of foreign languages are becoming more and more important, necessary and required, especially if to make the population more equal with the same opportunities and not cause linguistic handicaps in the current situation of internationalization, globalization etc. (Phillipe Van Parijs, 2004)
Our main motivation/aim is to achieve wider knowledge on psychology of motivation and process of language obtaining. How different factors like history, culture or life conditions influence the acquisition of a foreign languages. Moreover, how the above mentioned factors could influence the process of bilingualism, multilingualism, learning foreign languages and lingua franca. How processes like internationalization, Europeanization and globalization influence current linguistic situation and future language trends.
5. Problem formulation.
5.1 Research question
How does the fast necessity to obtain the English language during the rapid change from the Soviet Union& communism to the European Union in the post-soviet countries like Poland has influenced language learning?
• Why and how do we learn languages?
• How has the factors of motivation and learning of foreign languages in Poland changed after the II World War?
• How does this motivation matters in different social levels/ urban and rural areas?
• How has the “lingua franca” been perceived in the particular region?
• What are the future language trends?
• How to motivate people to learn more new languages and choose the “right” languages?
