ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to understand the importance of the types of motivation students need to learn a foreign language successfully. Teaching and learning a foreign language are dependent upon positive motivation. A questionnaire and an achievement test were prepared and administered to a group of 44 students. Results were analyzed and evaluations and comparisons between success and motivation levels were then used to make suggestions for planning activities relating to teaching and learning languages.
