ABSTRACT
This article discusses the importance of interest as a key factor in successful learning. For example in reading, the lack of interest causes many children as well as adults to fail in reading while children moved by high degree of interest show increased energy to work persistently at reading until satisfaction is gained from accomplishment. However, success in guiding the children to better reading experiences will depend a great deal on how close the teacher can get to the individual child's own tastes, needs and interests. Therefore, the teacher who identifies, uses, stimulates, cultivates and to some degree protects interests acts best to promote efficient learning.
