This link explores the various elements of motivation in the ESL classroom.


I found Part C particularly helpful - the mention of pair work and group work.  In my experience of teaching ESL reading classes, the consistent use of pair and group work in class significantly increases students' motivation to learn the language.  Giving the students regular opportunities to use the language that they're learning by interacting with each other motivates them to stay engaged with the content - inside and outside of the classroom.
