The Subject of this case study was a visually impaired teenage boy with extremely low proficiency in English as his second language (L2). The aim of the study was to look into possible internal and external causes of his problems with L2. The data was collected through classroom observation, one-to-one instruction, and a series of interviews, questionnaires, and tests. Based on the Subject’s results, the Author suggested some guidelines for teaching demotivated students with a negative attitude towards learning English as L2. The paper also gives an overview of the current situation in education of the visually impaired in Croatia.
