Abstract: The study intends to identify students’ attitudes toward ELI program and specific courses and teachers, and the English language itself, and how these attitudes affect their motivation. The analysis of the survey data revealed that students’ low motivation seemed to be related to their negative attitudes toward ELI program, which can be changed from an administrative perspective. Also, it was found that students’ willingness to learn English were strongly related to the teacher and the course itself, rather than their attitudes toward the language, English. These results are suggestive in that teachers and administrators may exert a potential role in improving students’ motivation.
