Ilyin’s classification of emotions was taken as the basis for the investigation of feelings that are most often experienced in regard to native and target culture. The feelings of pride, joy, care, responsibility, anger (dissatisfaction), shame and guilt were distinguished. Under certain conditions, emotions can affect values and even become values themselves. Therefore, the feelings of foreign language students were evaluated from the point of view of their stability and intensity. Having generalised the research data, it was determined that the students related their feelings to the phenomena significant for national culture: mother tongue, national identity and protection of national heritage. They also experienced stable feelings towards elite culture. [From the publication]
