Abstract: English as a foreign language has been taught from school level up to university classes in all academic institutions of Afghanistan. As an English teacher I have experienced different levels of students who are learning this language for various purposes. For most of students English is still a challenge to learn and speak. The main purpose of this study was to investigate about attitude of students toward learning this language. This paper will discuss on discovering what Afghan students at Shaheed Rabani Education University think about English language and how their attitude affect their learning process. Finally, it was found that however of the negative stereotypes regarding English language that it is the language of western countries and Afghan students are not interested to learn it, it was found that students are passionate enough and interested enough to learn and communicate through this language. It means it was finally found that most of students at Shaheed Rabani Education University had a positive attitude and motivation toward learning English language. also the majority of students who does not have the necessary facilities, money, and security to go private institutions and learn this language, still they are struggling and are interested to find a way for joining any kind of programs to learn this international language.
