Abstract


This study aimed at investigating the motivational level of English language teachers in Jordan. To achieve the goal of the study, the researchers used an English language teachers' questionnaire. A sample of one hundred English language teachers that teach in secondary schools from Amman Second Educational Directorate had been purposively selected to respond to the questionnaire. Data obtained indicated that the Ministry of Education, the school principals, the English language supervisors, the teachers’ colleagues and their students do not motivate the English language teachers in the Jordanian public secondary schools. The study also showed that the teachers of English language are motivated because they like their jobs, and teaching will help them in their future. Teaching also gives them security for their families and it is prestigious to be an English language teacher.
