Abstract

This research was focused in the motivational strategies that influence 11th grade students of English language class at Amistad Quebec School. Three main factors were identified in the teaching -learning process of this grade. The factors are the following: intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, traditional motivation and language anxiety. Extrinsic motivation, which leads to negative motive, attitude, and discouragement in participants, teacher and students, extrinsic motivation overrides intrinsic motivation in that some students are expected to finish the scholastic year to find a job. Traditionally, students do not use English outside of the classroom because classes usually focus on repetitive strategies. Also, old tendencies contribute to low student achievement in general. Language anxiety, in which students feel afraid to use what they have learned in the classroom, contributes to low achievement of the target language. In this investigation, interviews and focal groups will be used to understand how strategies used by teachers affect student motivation. In general, this research considers the relationship between traditional and modern methods in the engagement of students in English class, the attitude of the teacher toward English, and the ways in which the teacher motivates his students
