Every year, thousands of people from all over the world travel to Saudi Arabia to teach English. As well, yearly, thousands of Saudi students receive a large portion of their English education from these expatriate teachers. Despite the millions of dollars spent on this educational process, the linguistic impact suffers greatly from a lack of understanding between teacher and student, often caused by undiscussed misconceptions. This paper is written in an effort to open a dialogue about the problems of motivation in the Saudi college and university prep-year programs. It analyzes student motivation using three different research techniques, and posits solutions to increase student performance at both the institutional and classroom level. In particular this paper asks the question of how much effect a foreign teacher can have on any one student given the vast differences that can exist between them. It seeks to situate the effect of a teacher on a student’s life amongst the effect of other factors that come into play including friends, family, educational background, socioeconomic class and religion.
The lack of enthusiasm and underachievement demonstrated by more and more students in the classroom is due to a multitude of problems; among these is an underlying lack of motivation (Henderlong & Lepper, 2002). This research paper focuses on intrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation has been linked to a student’s success, diligence, and effort (Dicinto et al., 2004). This type of motivation is long lasting; consequently, a skill that transcends beyond school. As future educators it is our responsibility to educate the whole student, preparing them for life beyond the classroom. Therefore, developing strategies that foster intrinsic motivation in our students is important for their success. The purpose of this research is to best understand how a teacher can foster intrinsic motivation in students. Two semi-structured interviews were conducted to explore the understanding and practical strategies of cultivating intrinsic motivation. Findings showed that creating a classroom founded on relationships, empowerment, choice, interests, and technology promotes the development of this attribute.
“Business and human endeavors are systems… we tend to focus on snapshots of isolated parts of the system. And wonder why our deepest problems never get solved.” - Peter Senge An Analysis of Banking Sector of Pakistan.

This gives an insight into the motivation factors and what are the strategies that needs to be used to retain employees.
To tackle a bundle of resources for writing a research paper is not an easy task for an experienced instructor. Even worse, it is a confusing one for a student who is asked for the first time to write a research paper after studying several courses of essay writing. Writing a research paper needs not to be a frightening task. A research paper may be longer than most of all college essays, but a student will be given more time to complete it. Having a plan for work will make the process go smoothly. Over the years, I have arrived at a time-saving, ten-step, simple strategy for this. The first five steps prepare the student to write and the remaining steps helps in writing the documented paper.This book goes through these steps giving some examples from online resources.
Motivation, one of the leading problems in education, is an ongoing issue for teachers. Motivation is important because it highly contributes to achievement. Teachers have to be certain that their students are being motivated in order to develop a positive outcome. Boekaerts states that bad teaching kills motivation and that good teaching brings out the best in students of all ages. If you want to encourage your students to become their own teachers and develop independent learning skills, you need to know about the principles that guide motivated learnig. Motivation needs to be concerned about by every educator. It may be difficult for teachers to sustain motivation of students. Through positive reinforcement, teachers can sustain students interest.This book suggests some strategies to sustain students’ classroom motivation.
Motivation is an important individual difference (ID) variable to account for the variation in the language learning success. It is the factor that provides impetus required to start learning a second language, and later it becomes the driving force to sustain the long and tedious process of learning the language. To this end, the present study examined the motivation to learn English of Nepalese public high school learners, 13-16 years of age, in three districts of Nepal. Based on Dornyei’s (2005;2009) second language (L2) motivational Self System as the theoretical framework, this study employed a 63 item questionnaire to collect their view from 84 high school students and a semi structured interview to collect their opinion about learning English from 4 out of total sample. Correlation and regression analyses of the data showed that the main factors affecting learners’ English language learning motivation was the Ideal L2 Self and attitude to learning English, which also provided empirical support for the main constructs of the L2 Motivational Self-System.
The purpose of this research was to determine factors that affect students’ motivation in learning English as a common course at Debere Markos University. The findings of this study revealed that many of the students liked to learn English, but they didn’t give enough time to it as other courses; therefore, their motivation is not intrinsic but it is extrinsic. Students who are intrinsically motivated perform much better academically than students who are extrinsically motivated.
Distributions, age, sex, marital status, composition, fertility, Occupation, religion, ethnicity, language etc are major social indicators of a human society. Among them, distribution or origin of the GBS students, their ethnicity and their motivation towards the occupations in society were three aspects o exploration in this present study. Composition and distribution of GBS students will help the institution to predict the future activities, to develop the physical facilities including teaching materials and trained manpower. It will also reflect the role and status of the ethnic people in overall de3velopment of the country. Occupational motivation of will reflect the present motive of the students towards the services or commodities they can provide to the developing world according to the development strategies. To study these facts, the study area was chosen to be Gandaki Boarding School, Kaski, Nepal. It was established in 1965 with triangular relationship of local community, representative of the Shinning hospital (now INF) and United Mission to Nepal. It began and grew up as Gandaki Higher Secondary Boarding School, a regional school in western Nepal.
Motivation plays a significant role in the process of learning a language. Language teachers cannot effectively teach a language if they do not understand the relationship between motivation and its effect on language acquisition. The core of motivation is what might be called passion, which relates to a person's intrinsic goals and desires. Successful learners know their preferences, their strengths and weaknesses, and effectively utilize strengths and compensate for weaknesses. Successful language learning is linked to the learner’s passion. And instructors should find ways to connect to this passion. Learners need quality instruction, input, interaction, and opportunities for meaningful output, not only to make progress, but also to maintain motivation for language learning. A good teacher, then, must tap into the sources of intrinsic motivation and find ways to connect them with external motivational factors that can be brought to a classroom setting. This is especially significant when English is not seen as important to the students' immediate needs, other than to pass exams. Because learners have different purposes for studying a language, it is important for instructors.
Motivation is a scientific approach which gears the course of human development. It means a scientific force of gratification. It drives the course of satisfaction and perfection.

Although much as has been written on the subject of motivation, an attempt to uncover written literatures on motivation within the context of university support staff may appear a difficult task. This piece of work which is mainly the outcome of a review of relevant literatures and lessons gained from my experience while serving as a university staff in an African context starts by identifying who support staff in an institution of higher learning are and the reasons why they should be motivated. Informed by different motivational theories, it identifies management's catalytic role in support staff motivation which could result in a rise in work performance and subsequent progress of the university. Furthermore, this publication argues that support staff performance appraisal can be a useful tool to ascertain the effect of institutionalized motivational schemes on work performance. It concludes by maintaining that human motivation is complex as evident by variances in human needs, tastes and preferences. Therefore, an attempt to motivate university support staff may require an adequate need assessment of individual support staff. Get a copy of this book and find out more!!!
Everyone has his/her own choice to decide his/her future. Motivation has an important role in this term. Deciding to be a part of education world consciously will give different impact than entering it with external motivation. This profession demands teacher to be a good model. As Delors stated in Lingam (2004) “Teachers have a crucial role to play in preparing young people not only to face the future with confidence but also to build it with purpose and responsibility”. Evidence demonstrates that those who want to join the teaching profession have the desire to provide service for young people and this is regarded as the most valuable quality for teacher (Sears et al, 1994: 43). Since the previous study found that one’s motivation to enter teaching profession could predict his/her quality in educational world in the future, then the writer tried to put demographic of the respondents to correlate it with their background. The data that was collected then classified based on their motivation tendency and found out whether those aspects influence or not.

It is hard to imagine something more important than motivation in achieving success in sports. We are often tempted to claim that the great performances are based on innate abilities. A closer look at the life and training of the great performers forces us to admit the fact that their performances are a combination between their physical abilities and their deep desire to become better and better. The sports literature and history abounds with names of athletes that excelled due to a strong interior desire to succeed in sports and surmount different physical attributes like height, speed, strength or skill.
