As teachers of English working in a Japanese context a fundamental challenge we face is how to jump start student’s natural intrinsic motivation and help guide them on a path to become independent, autonomous learners. This presentation will discuss motivational benefits of encouraging curiosity in the language classroom while focusing on practical strategies to encourage English learners to actively engage in seeking information and knowledge.
