By acquiring a new language, people can not only come to respect differences, but also realize that they live in a small world. Although there are many positive aspects regarding acquiring a new language, not every person who attempts to learn a new language succeeds in obtaining the ability to effectively communicate for several reasons such as losing motivation and confidence towards learning, lack- ing an effective learning environments, and so forth. There is no doubt that teachers play a significant role in producing successful language communicators. Teachers are able to maintain and control students’ motivation towards studying both inside and outside the classroom, which certainly produces students’ confidence in their communication skills. In addition to the significant role of the teacher in the language learning process, students must also make an extensive effort to acquire a target language on their own. After careful consideration of the role of the instructor and learner in language development, we can come to the conclusion that effective lan- guage learning requires fruitful teaching and learner autonomy.
