Investigation into Motivation Types and Influences on Motivation: The Case of Chinese Non-English Majors
Zhao, Lei
English Language Teaching, v5 n3 p100-122 Mar 2012
Motivation is one of the most important factors affecting students' performance of English learning, which is widely concerned by foreign language teachers and researchers for a long time. However, how to promote students' motivation in learning English by knowing their English learning motivation types at the initial stages and the factors that influence their sustaining motivation in the long process of English learning is still in need of exploration in the Chinese context. The paper aims to investigate Chinese non-English majors' motivation in English learning to facilitate teachers' understanding of ways to increase it.
