As the role of attitudes is well-established in the relevant literature, and the fact that foreign language attitudes are mostly shaped afterwards in the learning environment, there are some lessons that could be drawn. In this regard, teachers are the first and foremost determinants in the
formation of language attitudes in most countries. Thus, teachers need to make a foreign language an enjoyable learning and communication experience using more communicative methods that will enable students to get to know a different language and a different culture, rather than a lesson. It should not be forgotten that teacher attitudes towards foreign language and foreign language lesson are effective in the formation of students' attitudes towards foreign language and their self-efficacy perception about foreign language. The fact that foreign language teachers are the primary source directly related to the target language for students gives them a role in reducing the anxiety of students towards foreign language and creating positive attitudes.
