Abstract

This article reviews the role of integrative motivation among overseas learners learning English at New College Lanarkshire, a further education college based in Scotland. The article discusses the role of integrative motivation in second language (L2) learning and examines the nature of the relationship between integrative motivation and L2 learning. The study engages students of English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) who have various levels of English and represent diverse backgrounds through online questionnaires. The responses received from the learners pertaining to their integrative motivation provide valuable insight into not only their academic needs, but also their career related and social needs.
