Abstract

As any kind of teaching, teaching foreign languages is a challenging task. As
educators, we need to find different approaches and try to use different materials in the teaching
process. These new types of knowledge will empower students to gain adequate language proficiency
needed for the challenges and demands of the 21st century. When it comes to second language
learning in the real world learning is no mean feat. When the studies begin and start to reveal, the
teacher becomes responsible for much of the learner’s motivation for learning. The teacher's main role
is to find and create powerful learning environment that will allow the students to facilitate meaningful
learning that is also attractive or fun. The primary purpose of this paper is to examine instrumental and
integrative motivation of Macedonian learners of English and German as a foreign language and to
investigate the domains of English and German relevant to the undergraduate students of the 'Goce
Delcev' University in Stip, Republic of Macedonia. This investigation made on 50 students, learners of
English and German from the UGD Stip will hopefully give us the answer concerning the level of
motivation and will possibly provide additional insight into a better identification of the existing
motivational challenges and into taking a more realistic perspective of Foreign Language Teaching in
the country .
