Motivation and Language Learning with Students of Chinese.
Wen, Xiaohong
Foreign Language Annals, v30 n2 p235-51 Sum 1997
Investigates the motivational factors of students of Asian and Asian-American backgrounds learning Chinese at the university level in the United States. Results indicate that intrinsic interest in Chinese culture and the desire to understand one's own cultural heritage are the initial motivation for students to learn the language and that motivational factors correlate significantly with desired learning outcomes.
