Motivational Orientations and Second Learner Variables of East Asian Language Learners in the United States.
Yang, Jean Sook Ryu
Foreign Language Annals, v36 n1 p44-56 Mar 2003
College Students enrolled in East Asian language classes were surveyed about their language learning motivational orientations (MOs). MOs were classified and measured on seven subscales; integrative, instrumental, heritage-related, travel, interest, school-related, and language use. Learners were highly influenced by interest, language use, and integrative MOs. Language of study, gender, heritage language, requirements and language proficiency variables had significant effects on students' MOs. (VWL)
