Erdogan, Esra; Tunaz, Mehmet
Online Submission, Frontiers of Language and Teaching v3 p147-160 2012
This paper takes a brief look at external and internal demotivating factors among EFL young learners at Pozanti Regional Primary Boarding School (YIBO). In the search of the reasons of demotivation, a questionnaire consisting of 5-point Likert Scale, open-ended questions, observations and interviews were administered. Following the evaluation of data tools, interviews were conducted with randomly chosen students, and a new lesson plan was designed and applied for 8 hours of English lesson independent from the state English book. Regretfully, this study is not exhaustive to provide solutions for demotivation due its limited application period. However, it might show that teachers could change the negative attitudes into positive ones even with little effort, though it does not occur miraculously.
