  • Motivation is the psychological quality that leads people to achieve a goal. For language learners, mastery of a language may be a goal. For others, communicative competence or even basic communication skills could be a goal. In linguistics, sociolinguistics and second-language acquisition, a number of language learner motivation models have been postulated. Work by Gardner, Clément, Dörnyei, Usioda and McIntyre are perhaps most known if not all accepted. Language is a communication coding system that can be taught as a school subject; an integral part of the individual's identity involved in almost all mental activities; the most important channel of social organization embedded in the culture of the community where it is used.
