    Abstract:
    This article critically analyses the gendered framework of second language investment, specifically focusing on gendered agency and its implications for individuals engaged in language learning. This statement underscores the significance of linguistic diversity and the active participation of multilingual students in challenging uniform language policies to foster global communication. The research places significant emphasis on language diversity, the dynamics of linguistic evolution, and the influence of emotional states such as fear and joy on the proficiency of individuals learning a foreign language, with the ultimate goal of enhancing the quality of English language instruction. The research underscores the importance of implementing comprehensive professional development initiatives for faculty members in higher education who teach in English-medium instruction (EMI) settings. These programs should incorporate elements of the target culture and effective communication strategies to promote a global cosmopolitan outlook. The article proposes conducting further research on gendered capital, ideologies, and identities within the context of language learning and teaching to enhance language education standards and outcomes.
