Christian Guzman (christianguzman) - The United States (106 books)This is a good read when you are feeling self loathing and need some inspiration!!

I also felt like this book would have been appreciated more if I had read it at a different time in my life. Maybe I went in expecting something different? TAKE WHAT YOU NEED FROM IT. It’s up to you!

Instrumental motivation underlies the goal to gain some social or economic reward through L2 achievement, thus referring to a more functional reason for language learning. Both forms of motivation are examined in light of research which has been undertaken to establish the correlation between the form of motivation and successful second language acquisition.
