Language Learning Motivation, Global English and Study Modes: A Comparative Study
Lanvers, Ursula
Language Learning Journal, v45 n2 p220-244 2017
Exploring the popular explanation that the global spread of English may demotivate students with English as their first language to learn other languages, this study investigates relations between student motivation and perception of Global English and tests for differences between traditional "campus" and distance university students with respect to motivation and perceptions of Global English issues. Results are tested for possible relations between motivational orientations, self-efficacy, chosen target language (TL) and students' perceptions of Global English and findings are evaluated within two recent models of (language) learner motivation. Implications of the findings, in particular with respect to theories of second language learning motivation, the positioning of English L1 speakers in different models of Global English, and the rationale of Global English as demotivator for this learner group, are discussed in the conclusion.
