Study on Students’ Motivation for Taking a Foreign Language Course
Keywords:Motivation, Second Language, Foreign Language, Mother Tongue, Target Language, Non-French-Speakers
AbstractWe estimate that foreign language learners in tertiary institutions have individual objectives for studying a particular language. These objectives become a major motivation for these learners to take a foreign language course. It is therefore our major preoccupation in this research to study in detail students’ individual motives for taking a French language course especially at the University level. We believe that having knowledge about students’ individual motivation is beneficial in meeting learning and teaching objectives.
