Abstract

ここ数年第2外国語を学ぼうとするモチベーションが高まっている。外国での生活,英語を使っての仕事などを考えている学生が増えている。この論文の中では実際に生徒がやる気を出させる方法をご紹介します。先生方各自持っている指導方法は重要ですがタスクベース指導法は生徒たちのモチベーションを高めるのにとても適しています。この論文では6種類のタスクを使っての比較そしてどのような影響をうけたかを表しています。Over the past few decades motivation has gained in importance for second language study. In Japan this is especially true to take advantage of interest in foreign culture and jobs using English, as English becomes the global language of business communication. This paper presents a number of practical steps teachers can follow to address motivation issues in the class, from developing a good rapport with students to building the idea of autonomy. However, the teacher creating the right environment by itself is not enough to completely deal with motivation, good teaching methodology is also important. One particular teaching ethos, Task-Based teaching is a powerful medium that provides students with opportunities to negotiate meaning and can increase motivation. This paper further compares how 6 different types of tasks can affect 3 important variables in motivation: autonomy, clear outcomes and appropriateness of challenge, and suggests the best type of task to build motivation.
