Abstract
"Motivation is a variable that has been most frequently studied among affective factors in L2education. While a group of studies on Korean EFL learners’ motivation examines theapplicability of L2 motivation theories and models, originally proposed for ESL learners (e.g.,Gardner’s [1985] socio-educational theory), to Korean EFL learners, few studies look into whattakes place in Korean EFL learners’ motivation from a temporal perspective. Analyzing surveydata from a total of 830 Korean high school students (enrolled in 2012) through exploratoryfactor analysis, we investigate the underlying dimensions of students’ motivation in learningEnglish. Five factors emerge from the students’ responses: (1) Globality (living or working inthe target language society and communicating with people around the world), (2) Students’taste (students’ predilection for the target language and their language teacher), (3) English as alingua franca, (4) Futurity (students’ life during and after college), and (5) Schooling (students’current high school life)."
