Investigating Attitude and Motivation of Iranian University Learners toward English as a Foreign Language
Sayadian, Sima; Lashkarian, Anita
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v3 n1 p137-148 Jan 2010
This paper discusses the attitudes and motivation Iranian learners have toward learning EFL at their university level. Although research of a similar nature has been done in other countries, the present study complements others by following 500 university learners and it provides another avenue for examining the language situation in Iran. To achieve this goal, Gardner's socioeducational model and the significance of motivation as a contributing factor in second/foreign language (SL/FL) learning are taken into consideration.
