Abstract

This literature review explores the many ways in which a social constructivist model of learning and teaching may enhance students’ motivation to learn a second language (L2). Socio-psychological perspectives and research methodologies are considered, alongside the integrative/instrumental orientations of motivation and the social constructivist nature of L2 learning.
