Introduction

Learning about stars and their influence on humans takes an important part in modern life. We all know that your zodiac sign is a representation of your personality.

Many people read horoscopes in newspapers, magazines and books, listen to special programmers on the radio. I don't believe in the daily or weekly horoscopes, because it's impossible to imagine that all the same zodiac sign will do the same things every day and solve the same problems. But what about the zodiac sign I think they can influence on our life. For example, the same zodiac sign can have the same skills or the same interests. It’s to say the zodiac sign can influence to choose our future profession, isn’t it?

Last year I worked at research paper “Signs of zodiac“ and I’m so interested in astrology, I read too many special books. That’s why this year I’d like to continue my theme – “Signs of zodiac and the influence of zodiac sign on leaning of foreign languages“.

For my opinion this work is important for me and for other pupils because it can help us to understand how the zodiac sign can influence on leaning of foreign languages and what language you can learn better.

The goals of my research paper are to find out the connection between a person’s character, his horoscope sign and the influence of zodiac sign on leaning of foreign languages.

Objectives of my research paper are:

1) to continue to study every zodiac sign and its facilities to learn different foreign languages;

2) to use all information in practice.

Research methods are:

1) to make questioning about my classmates, other pupils of my school;

2) according to all information to make the contrastive analyses;

3) to make questioning about foreigners;

4) according to all information to make the contrastive analyses;

5) according to all information to make a conclusion.

Subject of research are signs of zodiac.

Objects of my work are my classmates, other pupils of my school and foreigners.

Theoretic value of this research is all information about signs of zodiac and their facilities to learn foreign languages.

Science of the Stars.

1.1 Astrology

Astrology is the belief that can tell us about our personalities and other details of human character. The word "astrology" is a Greek word that means "Science of the Stars."

Someone who studies astrology believes that the movements and positions of bodies in the sky can tell us about past and present events and even predict the future.

There are 12 star sings:

Aries - March 21 - April 20

Taurus - April 21 - May 21

Gemini - May 22 - June 21

Cancer - June 22 - July 22

Leo - July 23 -August 21

Virgo - August 22 - September 23

Libra - September 24 - October 23

Scorpio - October 24 - November 22

Sagittarius - November 23 - December 22

Capricorn - December 23 - January 20

Aquarius - January 21 - February 19

Pisces - February 20- March 20

According to Astrology, your birth month tells you more than just your name. But there are two groups of believers of astrology: those who are agree that our lives are highly influenced by astrology and those who are against it. If you want to have your eyes opened then look first of all into the history of horoscope signs.

1.2 History of horoscope signs

Horoscopes and astrology began with the ancient Greeks some thousands years ago. They believed that every person’s life was predetermined at birth. They also believed that they could unlock a person’s purpose and predict what they would, could, or should do by the positioning the heavenly bodies (the sun and moon). What we know as “horoscope reading” originated before the time of Christ and spread throughout the world into the 1600s. At that time a man known as William Lilly (1602-1681) was able to integrate it with the Christian religion which he called “Christian Astrology”. He did this by predicting “The Great Fire of London” almost 14 years before it actually happened in 1652. At the time people believed he may in fact have started the fire and he was tried in parliament.

Well, it is also believed that 12 zodiac signs were originated in ancient Egypt and Babylonia, but when it comes to the advanced study of zodiac signs two countries seem to hold a dominating position i.e. India and China. Chinese astrology is also world famous and it uses animals for the names of the years.

Astrology has played an important role in our civilization. Starting with Adam and even being present in today’s society. Different civilizations seemed to be practicing astrology independently. Many people viewed astronomy and astrology as a similar science until the 1500s. People knew by looking at the sun or what the size of the moon was when to plant crops or even when a baby was going to be born.

Horoscope history relates to the history of the world. Astrology and its predictions have preceded formal education, books, printing, and other modern methods of communication and learning. Over time, each civilization used these “markers” in the sky as time clocks for planting crops and predicting weather. Using the information about the signs of zodiac today we can say what characters or ability people have. Let’s read about it in the next unit.

Signs of zodiac and the influence of zodiac sign on learning of foreign languages.

2.1 Signs of zodiac

Astrologers divided human into 12 psychological types: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.

Aries (March 21 – April 20) – the sign of Fire. Aries pupils always want to know everything at once. They like to learn foreign languages and they prefer more German. These people can read German books or listen to music of German popular singers.

Taurus (April 21 – May 20) – the sign of Earth. Taurus pupils work slowly. They are sometimes lazy, but business English course they can perfectly learn. It is to say English is their language.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21) – the sign of Air. Gemini pupils do lots of things well and they work quickly, but they don't like working hard! In class, they never sit still. They are also “Whyer”, they have really perfectly ability to learn different foreign languages.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22) – the sign of Water. Cancer is very sensitive, impulsive. They have also ability to learn languages, but more French than English or German.

Leo (July 23 – August 23) – the sign of Fire. Leo pupils are very honest. They are ambitious and they like controlling other people, but they don't listen very carefully to other people. They feel right at home when they speak Spanish or Italian. But they also can learn English well thanks their hard working.

Virgo (August 24 – September 23) – the sign of Earth. Virgo pupils are very logical and they work very hard. They are interested in different foreign languages. But they like more English.

Libra (September 24 – October 23) – the sign of Air. Libra pupils are very romantic. They are very interested in art and they like dancing. They can't decide if they really want to learn English.

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22) – the sign of Water. Scorpio pupils are often very intelligent and very ambitious, but they aren't very honest. They don't often change their friends. Scorpio pupils always pass their exams. They prefer more German than English.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) – the sign of Fire. Sagittarius pupils like playing sports very much. They listen well to other people and they are good pupils. They like English, and they like more English Grammatik. They like to learn foreign languages, but they prefer more German. These people can read German books or listen to music.

Capricorn (December 23 – January 20) – sign of Earth. Capricorn pupils are very ambitious and they work very hard. They don't like talking and they don't listen well to other people. They feel right at home when they speak Spanish or Italian.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) – the sign of Air. Aquarius pupils are romantic, but they are very independent. They always forget their books. They like English, they think this language is the language of “Future”.

Pisces (February 20 – March 21) – the sign of Water. Pisces pupils are very happy or very unhappy. They like helping other pupils very much, but they are often lazy. They don't work very well! They feel right at home when they speak Spanish or Italian.

According all these information, I can say that Taurus, Leo, Virgo, Aquarius and Sagittarius have perfectly facilities to learn English, Aries and Scorpio prefer more German, Leo and Pisces feel right at home when they speak Spanish or Italian. But it’s only the theoretic information. Is it true or false? I can’t answer now. Let’s know about it in the following section.

2.2 The influence of zodiac sign on learning of foreign languages

The goal of my research paper is to find out the connection between the horoscope sign and the influence of zodiac sign on leaning of foreign languages.

Last year I collected all information about pupils in my class, their date of birth and their English marks (Addendum 1). I did it so to know what marks Taurus, Leo, Virgo, Aquarius and Sagittarius, because these zodiac signs have perfectly facilities to learn English (according to Astrology).

This year I did this work once again, I’d like to remind that there are 3 Taurus pupils in my class 7 “B”, all pupils have “excellent”. There are 4 Leo pupils – two of them have “good” and other have ““excellent”. There are 4 Virgo pupils and they have “good” marks. There are 2 Sagittarius – one has “good” and one has ““excellent”.

In order that to easy count the mean score, I made the table of all marks according to their horoscope sign.

After this I made the statistic so to see what zodiac sign knows English better (Addendum 2). This statistic was shown than Taurus, Capricorn and Pisces are leaders of English. But can’t say that our horoscope isn’t true (Taurus, Leo, Virgo, Aquarius and Sagittarius have perfectly facilities to learn English, but Pisces feel right at home when they speak Spanish or Italian). Consequently we need more pupils so to analyze the horoscope. That’s why I did this work once again with other pupils from different classes (Addendum 3).

Then I made the list of all pupils’ marks according to their horoscope sign.

I wrote the statistic once again (Addendum 4). Now we see the real numbers and analyze the connection between the horoscope sign and the influence of zodiac sign on leaning of foreign languages. According to this diagram I can say that Taurus, Leo, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius have perfectly facilities to learn English. The horoscopes of zodiac signs are really fitted to pupils.

Astrologers also say us what language one or another zodiac sign prefer. I’d like to know about it, too. All pupils were questioned by the following items (Addendum 5): I asked all pupils to write their zodiac sign, what they think if it’s easy to learn English. I also asked what languages they would like learn. All pupils answered nameless. Pupil’s answers were very different:

Aries pupils would like to learn more French or Italian.

Taurus really likes English very much and they would like to know French.

Gemini pupils are really “Whyer”, that’s why they have really perfectly ability to learn English and they like to learn it.

Cancer would like to learn German and French.

Leo also likes English, but they also would like to learn Italian.

Libra can't decide if they really want to learn foreign languages.

Aquarius pupils are really romantic people. They like to learn English.

More popular answers I wrote in next diagram (Addendum 6).

Last year I collected statistic about our English teachers. There are 3 Leo teachers in my school. But the first subject of these teachers is German and English is only second subject. That’s why we can say that this sign is also through. We have also 2 Gemini teachers, 1 Sagittarius and these teachers said that they like English; English is their life (Addendum 7).

In summer I did another work, when I was in Ireland I asked foreigners from different countries, how their signs of zodiac influence on learning foreign languages.

In my group were 7 Italian, 11 Spanish, 5 German and 3 Russian people.

There are 7 Italian:

That’s why we had the following zodiac signs of foreigners: 4 Taurus, 5 Gemini, 3 Cancer, 4 Leo, 1 Virgo, 2 Scorpio, 1 Sagittarius, 2 Pisces. They also like English, not all foreigners can learn it perfectly. When we finished our English course we collected the following certificates:

1. Elementary

2. Pre-Intermediate

3. Intermediate

4. Upper-Intermediate

5. Advanced

6. Proficiency

I analyze all levels of English proficiency and compare them with the signs of zodiac. I have the following results (Addendum 8):

Unfortunately, there aren’t all zodiac signs in my group, but using those zodiac signs and their results I can say, that Taurus, Gemini and Leo have better levels of English proficiency than other zodiac signs.

Finally I asked all foreigners the question “Do you believe that there is a connection between person’s character and his horoscope sign?” I have received the following results (Addendum 9):

• 63 people (64 per cent from all the respondents) think that there is a connection between a person’s character and his/her horoscope sign.

• 36 people (35 per cent from all the respondents) think that there is no connection between a person’s character and his/her horoscope sign.

Conclusion

During my researching this theme I was convinced that Signs of Zodiac influence one's character and ability. The same zodiac sign will have the same skills and choose the same future profession. It doesn’t depend on nationality and what country you are from.

My research work was shown that Taurus, Gemini, Leo and Pisces have more ability to learn English. These people like this language, these people often choose their future profession that will be connect with English.

In conclusion I would like to say that this work can help for young people to choose the future profession. I'm Taurus, I’m also interested in English and I can say that English is my life, English is my future life and I would like to connect my future profession with English.
