Introduction
The issue proposed, "English Language Learning Culture" is the result of the Research Project entitled “Creation of a New English Language Learning Culture”. The authors have the hope that English study at the university can be improved with the formation of a new leaning culture that makes the students excellent learners. Theoretical and empirical methods such as survey, interviews, documentary analysis, self-reflection and group discussion, allowed the analysis and characterization of the problem: the learners do not know how to learn English. The culture involves different dimensions like, beliefs about the language and its study, learning inside and outside the classroom, with modern technology, connected to the world, with tutorship, using learning strategies, widening their general culture, centering on real English use, assuming a successful psychology, and humanism. A strategy was applied to form the New Learning Culture in students from the Foreign Language Department at the University of Pinar del Rio. The actions included courses, lectures, workshops, methodologies, lessons and scientific events. The teachers and the students themselves are the mediators to form the new culture in the learners. The results show the transformations from the students` traditional culture to the New English language culture, now with enjoyable, motivating, dynamic, fast and efficient learnings.
The new culture has got a set of dimensions:
  1. The learners´ beliefs about the language and its learning
  2. Learning English outside and inside the classroom
  3. The psychology of success in learning English is a need
  4. Using technology to improve English learning
  5. Language learning happens through reflection and social interaction
  6. The use of new English learning strategies
  7. Learning real English use rather than the language system
  8. Connectivity with the world and oneself by means of English
  9. The student´s cultural background
  10. Humanism in English Learning
Aims and Scope:
  1. Culture
