The process of learning is about making connections. This paper presents brain-based learning as a starting point for teachers, which connects academic (content), and emotional level based on the brain research results. As we live in a stressful world, school classrooms can provide pleasure, emotional comfort, as well as knowledge. When teachers create a positive emotional environment pupils gain emotional resilience and learn more efficiently. The purpose of this paper is to focus on emotions through learning principles and emotionally “safe” school environmental factors which are inseparable part of teaching and learning process. This paper also presents strategies implementing theoretical knowledge into language learning and respecting students´ emotions. It can be concluded thatemotions play an important role in how and why students learn. Brain-based learning is one of the innovative ways or attitudes to learning a language, but also learning itself.
