This short case study investigated the history of an Afghan student's English language learning process. The study also aimed to determine which learning style was best suited to Osman, as the participant of this study, to learning English. Moreover, the study attempted to assess oral skills, written skills, the participant’s attitudes towards learning English, preferences, and language learning history. Therefore, the data was collected from both an online survey questionnaire and a semi-structured interview. The findings of the study revealed that he, despite several social factors, could successfully learn English. During his language learning process, the number of his characteristics was determined. He was a visual learner and learned the target text which had pictorial aspects. Furthermore, the study also yielded that he would speak better than his classmates as he followed several other channels for learning English online, (i.e., BBC, CNN, Podcasts, YouTube, and other English learning websites).
