Abstract

In the present study we surveyed the English language learning motivations of 518 secondary school students, university students and young adult learners in the capital of Chile, Santiago. We applied multi-group structural equation modeling to analyze how language learning goals, attitudes, self-related beliefs and parental encouragement interact in shaping motivated behavior and to investigate age- and group-related differences in the internal structure of language learning motivation. We compared our findings to previous studies using similar instruments in different settings, and based on our findings, we proposed a new interactive model of language learning motivation, which consists of goal-systems, attitudes, self-efficacy beliefs and future self-guides.
