The rapid spread of English language and its prestigious status in the contemporary world have affected the motivational orientations, language attitudes and identities of its learners. In this scenario, knowing young learners’ L2 motivation and attitudes may be important as this may give language teachers a detailed understanding of their learners’ changing aspirations and needs. Therefore, this book is an attempt to understand and explain L2 motivation of a sample of Pakistani students. The study reported in this book showed that the participants were not willing to integrate with the particular community and culture of English-speaking countries. However, they showed a non-ethnocentric attitude towards the world at large and were keen to participate in the international English-speaking community. They appeared to have developed a bicultural identity involving global and local identities simultaneously. Overall, the study supported the idea of reinterpreting 'integrativeness' and investigating L2 motivation from the L2 self perspective, which may comprehend the dynamic and multidimensional identification processes of English language learners in the contemporary world.
