  1. 1. Linguistic and intercultural contact effects on foreign language learning motivation. Rosa Cortés Hernández Supervisor: Gabriela Casillas Navarro
  2. 2. Background Importance of English language learning. According to Gardner and Wallace (1972), the motivation to learn the language of the other target language community is a primary force responsible for enhancing or hindering intercultural communication and affiliation. Playa del Carmen, the setting of this research study, has the characteristics of a multicultural and multilingual setting, since different ethnolinguistic communities converge and interact in the same geographically localized community. .
  3. 3. Problem statement Students from the Universidad Tecnólogica de la Riviera Maya (UTRM) studying Tourism have the need to learn English not only for academic but for professional purposes. However, English Language Learning represents a difficult goal to achieve since they do not seem to be genuinely interested in learning this language. This lack of interest leads in turn to low academic progress, failure and in some cases scholar dropouts.
  4. 4. General objective The purpose of this research is to explore how linguistic and intercultural contact with speak English-speaking tourists who visit Playa del Carmen affects the motivation and attitude of UTRM Tourism students to learn English.
  5. 5. Specific objectives To identify motivational factors of English language learners, focusing specially on attitude and motivation. To determine the possible relationship between the linguistic and intercultural contact and English language learning academic progress in the UTRM Tourism students.
  6. 6. Hypothesis If linguistic and intercultural contact is a major factor contributing to motivation in learning the L2 and enhance the desire for further intercultural communication (Dörnyei, 2005), language learners in Playa del Carmen will show high motivation levels towards English.
