ABSTRACT
Current research emphasizes the role of intrinsic motivation in academic learning in general, and in the learning of second languages in particular. This is due to the effort, perseverance and self-assessed competence required for adequate adaptation to, and development of, the learning/teaching process. Middle School Students with more intrinsic motivation for the learning of English will obtain better academic achievement in this subject. The participants were 542 Middle School Students. The results demonstrate correlations between goals and academic results, with an association between learning goals (intrinsic motivation) and greater levels of achievement. This study allows us to conclude that intrinsic motivation factors are decisive in academic achievement and the data are useful to improve the teaching/learning process in this subject.
