Abstract [en]

The aim with this essay was to investigate the relationship to the English language among Italian students, their attitudes and motivation to learn English. The background consists of theories considering second language acquisition, including gender, attitudes and motivation. For the research questionnaires were used. The questions regarded their interest, the situation at school and in their spare time considering their possibilities to learn and maintain their knowledge. The questionnaires were handed out to both male and female students. The conclusion is that considering the years and hours at school studying English, give the students a good opportunity to learn English. All students have an awareness of the importance of English as a global language though their exposure to English outside school differs as well as their motivation and attitude. Overall, a majority of the students have a desire to learn English.
