Description: Motivation plays a relevant role on the learners reflective activity and, in essence, on his autonomy. But how can we as teachers improve the motivation of our second language learners? We have made a small research with our students (level B1+ German and Spanish) on a special written feedback technique. In the presentation we will discuss our results with the participants. We will discuss the following questions: “How will motivation be guaranteed by using some strategies? How can we generate an impact on the language learning attitude of students?” In our presentation we would like to focus on the different attitudes of language learners and the strategy to influence their motivation.
