20211023T1355 20211023T1425 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh The Correlation between Motivation and English Language Achievement of Non-English Majored Students in Vinh University

It is common knowledge that motivation exerts a crucial impact on language learning achievement. Existing literature has pointed out that ESL/EFL learners can achieve high scores if they are motivated appropriately, either instrumentally or integratively. Nonetheless, little has been done about the influence of these motivational variables on non-English majored students in an EFL setting. This paper aims to shed light on the correlation between the two primary types of motivation and non-English majors' EFL achievements, thereby giving suggestions on how to motivate them to learn English. The data obtained from a questionnaire-based survey of 150 non-English majors at Vinh University was analyzed by Pearson Product Moment in the program of Statistical Product and Services Solutions (SPSS). The results show that there was a positively significant correlation between intrinsic motivation and non-English majored students' language learning achievement while there was no correlation between students with extrinsic motivation and their English proficiency achievement.
