Introductory Text as a Motivational Tool in Teaching Grammar
University of Central Florida

As we all know, the subject of motivation is still problematic and widely discussed in
teaching second language.
To motivate students, to attract their attention, is one of the most important tasks in teaching. If
our audience is not awakened, our words, even the most thoughtful, clear, and bright, will be a
wasted effort. The issue of motivation is especially important in teaching grammar, which is
habitually concerned as a tedious process. A properly designed introductory text can be one of
the motivational tools in teaching grammar.
