What happens in the brain when we challenge it with learning a foreign language? What are the chemical and biological processes that take place when we try to decode a foreign language? The paper summarises current research in the field of neuroscience and biology of language learning and presents the promising future perspectives in these fascinating fields. It also correlates these findings with the concept of Learning Oriented Assessment introduced by Cambridge Assessment English (Jones & Saville, 2016).
