Abstract

This research aimed at investigating the students’ motivation in English learning as a second language. The method used was a survey by randomly asking the students in Pritchard English Academy (PEACE) to fill out a questionnaire which adapted from Attitude Motivation Test Battery (AMTB) designed by R.C. Gardner. The questionnaire was administered to a group of 30 students who come from intermediate until advanced level. The data were analyzed by using SPPS program. It was used to find out mean score and standard deviation. The main findings show that the students are relative “highly” motivated and found to be slightly more “instrumentally” motivated to learn English. This reveals that instrumental motivation is a significant factor among this group of students learning English. Based on this study’s findings, some relevant and useful motivational learning implications are recommended for enhancement and improvement of the students’ motivation.
