This article attempts to show the experience of
children with hearing impairment I relation to motivation and perceptual
limitations in the scope of learning the English language. It outlines the
findings of the author’s own research which included 24 questions asking
students to define their motivation to learn the English language, its
circumstances , the activities which accompany the learning process, awareness
of hearing impairment and this influence on foreign language acquisition. Also,
it discusses the pragmatic side of learning, i.e. the intended usefulness of
the English language in the students’ life in relation to their future.
