A Study of the Attitudes and Motivation of High School Foreign Language Students.
Dodick, David J.
Canadian Modern Language Review, v52 n4 p577-95 Jun 1996
Studied why native-born American students are less motivated and less successful at learning French than non-native-born students. Findings indicate that native-born American students' lack of exposure to foreign languages and cultures via the media affected their motivation. Strategies are outlined for increasing motivation through greater cultural awareness. (21 references) (Author/CK)
