Enhancing Students’ Level of Motivation in Learning English: The Case of 1st Year’s Economics Students

F. Guerid

Abstract—The aim of this study is to focus on the importance of students’ motivation in learning English. Teachers of English who teach students of other subjects other than English should face the challenge of motivating their students to learn English. The teacher who tries to find out the causes of obstacles in front of students motivation and tries to remove them will succeed in his mission of teaching because the more we get motivated learners the more teaching is efficient. In Algeria, enhancing students’ level of motivation is an ongoing challenge especially with the students of other subjects because during their previous school years they do not give importance to English as they do for example with Physics or Mathematics if these students belong to the scientific stream. In our study, we have used a questionnaire as a research tool. We have distributed 100 copies to our population; 1st year students of the Preparatory School to Economics, Commerce and Management Sciences of Annaba Algeria. We have collected 90 answered copies that constitute the basis of our study and analysis.

Index Terms—English for specific purposes, teaching/learning English, motivation.
