Four reasons to learn languages passionately:
(1) "Intrinsically motivated learners are deeply concerned to learn things well, in a manner that is intrinsically satisfying and that arouses a sense of optimal challenge appropriate to their current level of skill and competence."
(2) "Good language learners know how to seek out and to exploit the social interdependence and the human need for relatedness or connectedness that is integral to internally driven motivation"
(3) "Our capacity for motivational self-regulation is a function of the degree to which we are aware of ourselves as agents in the construction of the goals and expectations that shape our motivation."
(4) "A child does not realize how much he does not know, but an adult is aware of his own limitations and is likely to give up and conclude that he has lost the capacity to learn a language."
