This chapter is related to the impact of affective factors in the independent learning process. It examines the experience of a group of adult distance learners of French, German and Spanish studying at the UK Open University. The chapter explores the social, affective and self-motivational strategies the students use, as well as the role intrinsic motivation plays in their self-regulation of the learning process. While finding limited evidence of the learners' explicit use of affective and social strategies in the learning process, the chapter argues that such strategies play a significant role in the wider process of self-regulation.

Keywords:   motivation, self-regulation, distance learning, language learning, affective strategy, social strategy
