An assumption of this thesis is emphasis on language usage will create individual differences in acquisition. On this assumption, movies are recommended as a tool to emphasize language use, especially in such a learning environment as an EFL classroom at school, one which emphasizes language usage. In exploring factors to create individual differences in acquisition, cognitive styles as well as motivational factors are discussed in relation to the learning environment which emphasizes language usage. Then, an EFL classroom at school is examined and discussed in terms of probability of emphasis on language usage. As a result of examinations, factors to imply emphasis on language usage are pointed out and an EFL classroom at school is theoretically proved to be an environment that may develop learning styles focusing on language usage. Validity of movies as a tool to emphasize language use is then implied.
