The paper discusses psycho-didactic framework which is applied to stimulate language development and test language competence in students of bachelor study programmes within Blended learning concept. Cognitive and affective determinants are unique to each student. When this perspective is simplified to the core it is possible to state that each student has his/her learning prerequisites like knowledge and has his/her attitudes, interests and self-esteem. In this presented research we tried to demonstrate the concept of determinants with real participants on the real teaching-learning stage. The goal is to maternize theory and visualize how theory aligns with practice.
