English as a foreign language
Initially, Old English was a group of several dialects, reflecting the varied origins of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England. One of these dialects, Late West Saxon, at one point came to dominate. The original Old English language was later influenced by two invading waves: the first was from speakers of the Scandinavian branch of the Germanic languages, who conquered and colonized parts of Britain, the second was from the Normans in the 11th century, who spoke Old Norman and developed a variety of English called Anglo-Norman. These two invasions caused English to mix to some extent.
The Germanic language displaced the indigenous Brythonic language in what would later become England. The original Celtic languages remained in parts of Scotland, Wales and Cornwall. The dialects spoken by the Anglo-Saxons form Old English (also called Anglo-Saxon). The most famous literary work from this period is a fragment of the epic poem Beowulf, which appears to have been substantially modified later.
What languages influenced the English language?
Modern English comes from a Germanic language that arrived in Britain in the 5th century with the Anglo-Saxon tribes. Those who already lived there spoke Celtic languages, but it is this Germanic language, which was imposed on many of them, that would become the basis of the English we know today.
What is the influence of other foreign languages?
The reciprocal influence between two languages is very interesting. It occurs because of internal and external factors. The internal ones include the processes within the human mind. On the other hand, the external ones focus on social efforts that can shape how people interpret the world.
What factors influence English language learning?
However, the external factors that seem to contribute the most are related, on the one hand, to 1) the classroom learning environment, 2) the institutional curriculum, 3) the professional preparation of teachers, 4) the role of the local community, and 5) the role of national policies.

There are others that have presented L2 self and L2 learner motivation in the Asian context (see more data in Apple, Da Silva & Fellner, 2013, 2016). However, most of them have the main focus centered on English language learning. There is still a lack of research looking at how specific self-images of different LLEEs are and their relation to the position of those languages in the same sociocultural context, especially, in China.
Despite its prominent role in the Eastern country, English performs, most of the time, instrumental functions in the educational field (Feng, 2009) with 'intra-national purposes' (Bolton & Graddol, 2012). However, the communicative function of this language has taken a back seat, due to the pressure exerted by exams on students who must take these tests to obtain their relevant degrees, as there is a reigning idea: exams first (Pan & Block, 2011).
