Motivation for Sign Language

I wish I had this type of MOTIVATION when it comes to continuing to learn American Sign Language next semester (and for the rest of my life).

MOTIVATION (according to Ortega, Understanding Second Language Acquisition)

“We end the chapter on motivation with what is perhaps the most important question that teachers and learners of languages as themselves: How central is motivation in explaining the relative degree of success that different people encounter when they attempt to learn and additional language? That is how much can motivation buy us in predicting successful L2 learning?” (188).
