Abstract

Cultivating four skills, interests, attitudes, and learning habits in the Chinese language is a fundamental objectives of the Chinese Language Education Curriculum in Hong Kong (Curriculum Development Council, 2017). However, an overemphasis on developing the four skills of language learning has often overshadowed the importance of fostering students' interest and motivation. Previous studies in Hong Kong have demonstrated the critical role of teacher instruction and practice in shaping student motivation (Lai, 2009; Yin et al., 2009). Nevertheless, there is a noteworthy deficiency in teachers' awareness of motivational strategies (Law, 2009), revealing that teachers perceive an urgent necessity to acquire knowledge on how to augment students' motivation to engage in learning (Lee, 2015).
