The thirst for learning a new language would exist naturally for those who need to face the challenges thrown by this globalized world. As a result, people try to learn a new language which becomes almost mandatory for better outcomes overcoming many bottlenecks. Thus, there arise certain issues which are dealt in this paper vividly with reference to literary theories structuralism and post-structuralism. The theorists express their statements which buttress their theories but then few of those statements can be associated with the difficulties faced by a second language learner. The general ideas discussed by theorist Roland Barthes and other theorists also play a very important role in discussing the difficulties where they had analyzed everything in depth. The most important concept of Saussure about sign, signifier and signified is also brought out which can be inter linked with the difficulties of a second language learner. The fear factor also plays a significant role which is also dealt in the paper. It becomes clear at the end that if a learner needs to learn English as his/her second language, he/she should be cautious about what are all the possible factors which would mislead them in their process, few of which are discussed in this paper.
