Review by Asunaro
Dornyei is a leading researcher on motivation in the language classroom. His other volumes provide an expansive top down, bottom up view of how the student's environment, experiences, and internal thoughts affects his/her motivation. This book takes that research and expresses it in a simple manner easily understood by any teacher. Equally as important, Dornyei provides practical suggestions for improving student motivation. At the end of the book is a check list of suggestions that helps summarize what was covered and helps teachers identify possible points where student motivation may drop off during the educational cycle.
