Abstract:

This book fills an existing gap in language learning motivation research by
examining the applications of current motivational theories and models from
WEIRD (Western, educated, industrialized, rich, developed) contexts to
educational systems in Asian contexts. All chapters are focused on second
language (L2) motivation as it applies to the EFL situation in Asian countries
where English is a mandatory subject in school. Themes in the volume cover the
use of possible L2 selves as a theoretical model of motivation, the role of
teacher motivation and demotivation in non-European educational systems, study
abroad, motivation among adolescents, cross-cultural differences in learner
motivation among Asian cultures and the influence of native speakerism on
language motivation and cultural identity. This book will appeal to ESL/EFL
educators, postgraduate students, researchers and teacher-trainers both inside
and outside Asian countries, who are interested in research on L2 motivation
in general and within Asian contexts in particular.
