Abstract

Multiple studies have been conducted in the past on learners’ motivation to learn English language highlighting the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that prompt learners to learn. In comparison with the above, the number of studies conducted on teachers’ own motivation to teach English language is comparatively less. This literature review addresses motivational factors, both intrinsic and extrinsic that influence ESL teachers across the globe. It addresses the following three research questions: What are the motivational factors that influence pre-service ESL teachers? What are the motivational factors that influence in-service teachers? What are the differences found in motivational factors of pre-service and in-service ESL teachers to teach English language? Findings are based on 15 studies published from 2014 to 2021. This review disseminates substantial and needed information to educational institutions’ administrators and policy makers about measures that should be taken to enhance motivation for pre-service and in-service ESL teachers to teach English language.
