Abstract


Motivation has long been identified as one of the main factors affecting the English language learning. The study examines the type and level of ESP learning motivation (extrinsic and intrinsic) of 148 first-year undergraduate students of Klaipeda University as well as their attitudes towards learning the English language. Identification of the kind of students’ motivation and their attitudes to learning will help to formulate measures for the improvement of students’ learning motivation and the subject learning quality.

KEY WORDS: teaching quality, learning outcomes, tertiary education, intrinsic / extrinsic motivation, learner’s attitude, second language teaching / learning.
