Abstract
"Motivation is not only important in language learning, but in all learning processes. Research reveals that students who are well-motivated perform better in school than those with low motivation (e.g. Dörnyei, 2014; Dörnyei & Ushioda, 2011). As a result, it is essential that teachers, and parents pay close attention to the concept in question so that successful learning is always promoted. To be able to discuss the complexity of motivation in detail, five important articles were examined in this paper. These contributions have been written by Zoltan Dörnyei (Motivation in second, and foreign language learning, 2009; Attitudes, orientations, and motivation in language learning: Advances in theory, research, and application, 2005), Robert Gardner (Integrative motivation, and second language acquisition, 2005), Jacqueline Norris-Holt (Motivation as a contributing factor in second language acquisition, 2001), and Mehmet Nuri Gomleksiz (The effects of age, and motivation factors on second language acquisition, 2001)."
