Abstract

 the geographies where various languages are spoken together, individuals may have to experience learning one or more languages in order to satisfy their needs. As seen in the past, when societies who live together and use various language groups make contact with people who use other language groups and cultures, they have to interact with each other. This mutual effect is then reflected on the languages and brings the term of bilingualism or multilingualism into the agenda. Multilingualism is regarded as the simple form of bilingualism and the acquisition of a second language indicates the ability to use another language. The process of dual-language/bilingualism emerges in cases where people learn/acquire another language in addition to his/her mother language. Dual language or bilingualism can be stated as an individual expressing themselves in two or more languages as effectively as in the mother tongue. The reason for choosing this topic is the increasing popularity of it; because human beings who use various languages all over the world have had to live together for numerous reasons such as wars, migrations, marriages and trade. In our qualitative research, we would like to state that the findings and conclusions that are obtained from the evaluation of the attitudes of the bilingual students related to the acquisition of English will contribute to the literature and provide a different perspective. In this regard, so as to understand and shed light on  the ideas of students towards bilingualism, a survey was conducted in a state University, England.
