Abstract

This article reports on questionnaire results related to motivational factors and student attitudes towards an international bilingual email project between law and business students in England and Germany. Both groups discussed subject-specific content. At the beginning and the end of the project, students filled in a questionnaire answering questions which were designed to elicit information about their motivation for studying a language in conjunction with their main degree courses in business and law. The term motivation and its use in recent publications is examined and particular emphasis is placed on motivational factors which might be connected to the use of information technology. The study focuses on the results gained from the English groups.
