Abstract: In the scope of the battery developed – BAMA (motivational, affective and learning aspects assessment), in PhD investigation, we are able, in clinical and fundamental (research) contexts, to assess the influence of several factors in the second-language/culture learning context and to detect differences between children and adolescents with migratory experience in the psychosocial and academic growth. It´s our intention present results in what respect to the different learning styles manifested by each nationalities group and also differences between ages and gender. The children and female present means more favourable in several psychological variables, as predictors in the languages learning, what we can relate to findings of otherinvestigations. Age,gender and also the nationality are, effectively, factorsin the languages acquisition/learning achievement and in the attitudes developped. The individuals are from several countries, with different mother languages and different experiences. There are resultsthat could help to understand behaviours and achievement that differentstudents, according to neuropsychological and linguistic predispositions, present in second language acquisition/learning and in the biopsychosocial development.
