Task Features and Language Learning Motivation

Li Nan Wu Yi'an  
The research of language learning motivation has shown a strong positive correlation between learning motivation and learning achievement.However,most of the studies have been conducted from a general and static perspective,ignoring the dynamic nature of learning motivation as well as the contingent factors that may lead to motivation change.Based on a dynamic motivation model,the present study examines(1) the effects of three task features-topic familiarity,task type and contextual supporting material-on learners' task motivation;(2) the correlation between task-specific motivation and general motivation(types and intensity).The results show that all the three features examined effectively enhance EFL learners' task motivation during in-class learning.Among the three tast features,topic familiarity played the most important role in affecting task motivation.The results also show that only intrinsic interest had a significantly positive correlation with task motivation.
