Temple University Japan:

TUJ Osaka Distinguished Lecturer Series: Language Learning Motivation and Its Assessment

Date: Saturday, April 11th, 2015 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Zoltan Dornyei (University of Nottingham, U.K.)

Description:
Motivation is widely seen both by practitioners and researchers as one of the key factors that determine the success of the acquisition of a foreign/second (L2) language, and therefore L2 motivation research has a rich history of over fifty years within the study of second language acquisition. This seminar will offer an overview of the development of this research tradition while also focusing on how the various emerging phases of L2 motivation research have been linked to specific educational concerns and research methodologies.
