World Journal of Education, v8 n2 p174-180 2018
The spread of English as a world language has reached many non English speaking countries. In the Expanding Circle (Kachru, 1988), many countries in Africa demonstrate more and more interest in learning it. This paper investigates Chadian learners' attitudes and motivation in learning that language. The study's subjects are made up of 190 secondary/high school learners and 70 university students. The analysis is based on Gardner's and Lambert's (1972) integrative and instrumental motivation model. Results showed that both female and male students at secondary/high school and university levels have a positive attitude towards English. They all have a high instrumental motivation and their interest in learning English for communicative and traveling purposes is quite significant.
