Research results are our tool for approaching reality and truth. Validity and reliability of research instruments is the gate to reach generalizable results. The validity and reliability of an instrument are important aspects that allow for using the instrument in future research. This study tried to investigate if language influences the results of a survey applied to students in two languages (Arabic and English). The study utilized responses from (239) students from a Jordanian public university. Results indicated a significant difference between the means of the Arabic and English language surveys used. Results and conclusions are reported.
