The Impact of Motivation on Enhancing Speaking Skill Among Saudi Learners: A Literature Review

  •  Gadah Brahim Aleidan    


This literature review examines the impact of motivation on enhancing speaking skill among Saudi learners. It aims to demonstrate one psychological factor (motivation) and the impact that it has on developing Saudi English-speaking skill. Previous studies findings suggest that Saudi learners’ lack of motivation to speak English is highly influenced by their surroundings, such as their family, classmates, teachers, and even textbooks, other teaching materials, and teaching methods. Therefore, teachers should use various kinds of materials and teaching formats such as discussion sessions, news articles, television shows, conversations, interviews, and stories because they capture students’ attention and boost their motivation.
