Presentación2 descriptive research

  1. 1. Motivation as a Contributing Factor in Second Language Acquisition BY JACQUELINE NORRIS-HOLT AICHI SHUKUTOKU HIGH SCHOOL (NAGOYA, JAPAN)
  2. 2. Abstract  This paper explores Gardner's socio-educational model and the significance of motivation as a contributing factor in second language (L2) acquisition. This journal explore two basic types of motivation: integrative and instrumental. Integrative motivation is characterized by the learner's positive attitudes towards the target language group and the desire to integrate into the target language community. Instrumental motivation underlies the goal to gain some social or economic reward through L2 achievement, thus referring to a more functional reason for language learning.
  3. 3. Purpose, research questions, hypothesis  Both forms of motivation are examined in light of research which has been undertaken to establish the correlation between the form of motivation and successful second language acquisition. Motivation in the Japanese EFL context is then discussed and studies which have been conducted in the field investigated.
  4. 4. Method  This is a descriptive research  The participants were a group of 90 first-year Japanese university students  The instruments were tests.
  5. 5.  Data analysis: From information brought to light by Morrow (1987) on English in the Japanese education system it would appear that little has changed in the past 13 years. The teaching of English in junior and senior high school is still directed toward preparing students for university entrance examinations. Therefore, the underlying motivation to study the language is largely instrumental.
  6. 6. References  Jacqueline Norris-Holt and Aichi Shukutoku (2001) Motivation as a Contributing Factor in Second Language Acquisition. Retrivied from http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1944- 9720.2000.tb00932.x/abstract
  7. 7. Why does the research choose this method?  I feel that in this document the author choose the descriptive research because he only wanted to know the characteristics of motivation with this group and to realize what is the principal motivation in students. I mean what they were motivated to learn. For example if they really like English or they wanted to achieved something else (a job).
