SUMMARY:

According to Sociocultural theory, human development emerges from a dialectical interaction between man and context (Lantolf, 2000). Although the traditional locus of learning is the language classroom, it also takes place, in a great variety of ways, out of institutional walls. One of them is through affiliation to imagined communities. This study aims to explain how such affiliations influence the learning of English as a foreign language in the southeast of Brazil. The theoretical framework orienting data generation and analysis encompasses the following constructs: (1) identity and investment within Norton’s perspective (1995, 2000; 2013; 2017; 2019), (2) motivation and vision according to Dörnyei (2005; 2019; 2017; 2019), Dörnyei e Ryan (2015) e Dörnyei e Kubanyiova (2014); (3) Wenger’s (1998; 2009) proposal of affiliation to imagined communities revisited by Norton (2013; 2015); and (4) the concept of successful language learning defended by Arruda (2014). This applied research, formatted as an exploratory Case Study, will have volunteer students taking Letters at a state university as participants. They will provide oral narratives of successful English learning experiences permeated by affiliations to imagined communities. Seeking to understand their nature and composition, these experiences will by analyzed by reference to Miccoli’s L2 language learning experiences framework (Miccoli; Bambirra; Vianini, 2020). By doing so, it is expected that not only patterns relating students’ affiliations to imagined communities and successful language learning will arise, but also it will be possible to realize which elements directly concur to language development.
