"When trying to explain success or failure in second/foreign languages (L2) learning, the term 'motivation' is often used by teachers and students alike. Indeed, motivation is one of the key learner factors that determine the rate and success of L2 attainment: it provides the primary impetus to initiate learning the L2 and later the driving force to sustain the long and often tedious learning process. Without sufficient motivation, even individuals with the most remarkable abilities cannot accomplish long-term goals." "This book takes a practical approach to teaching motivational strategies in the language classroom, and gives the teacher 35 motivational strategies that they can use with language learners."--BOOK JACKET.
