Introduction The purpose of this essay is to demonstrate the application of the L2 motivational self-system to the English as a foreign language (EFL) and English as a second language (ESL) contexts. More than ever, the English language has become a global means of communication. As a result, the non-English speaking countries, such as Korea and Saudi Arabia, have encouraged students to learn English. Motivation has been cited as a major factor that determines the mastery and acquisition of the English language. While in most cases EFL and ESL are used interchangeably, there are a few distinctions, mostly based on the sources of motivation to learn the language.
The secondary schools of many countries teach the foreign language must be English. English has become a global language geographically, English is the primary language of business, navigation, science and technology, and academia. Reshaping the cultural landscapes of various countries in ways directly. For example, more and more Afrikaner and black children are being raised bilingual in English and Afrikaans ( Broeder et al. 2002, Giliomee 2003), although Afrikaans remains an asset in the rural areas of Kwa-Zulu Natal, Gauteng, and the Cape provinces.
Language Teaching Methods Silent Way In this video, the context is learning English as a second language (ESL). In an ESL situation, the learner is learning English within an English environment and needs to understand and speak English outside the classroom too. Until he learns enough English, he will find it very difficult to keep up with his work. He might even find it difficult to make friends.

According to Crystal (2001), English is a global language. It means that English is used by people in all over the world as a medium of communication. In addition, Crystal (1997) stated that the English language spread and used nearly a quarter of the world's population and continues to develop into one and a half trillion in the early 2000's it. Until now, It is a language which is used by different countries in the international forum,
English has got the status of international language for various reasons. It has crossed the national borders of English speaking countries and reached people who speak other languages. In that sense, we can say that English is no longer a unique posseion of the British or American people, but a language that belongs to world’s people. Almost all the international organizations held their meetings in English and it reveals its importance in maintaining international relations and communication. Hence, it can be also called as the language of diplomacy and international politics.
Declining the standards of English among undergraduate was a serious problem need to be solve urgently. As Malaysia emphasize on the learning of Bahasa Malaysia to become national language of its country, enrolment of either local primary or secondary schools, universities are using the Malay language as main language on education. SENATOR Khairiah Mohamed’s tongue-in-cheek comments in Dewan Negara (NST, Dec 10) regarding English language pronunciation problems may be seen as a joke by many, but these are real, everyday scenes in many Kelantan schools (Times, 2015). Instead of standardize English, Malaysian English was a serious problem in this country. Local residents familiar with their local language, they communicate by mixing the Malay and English at the same time.

English is important language in this world, it is spoken in many countries both as main or second language when we are in foreign. Crystal reports in 1997 (as cited in Hui, 2001) stated that 85 percent of international organizations make official use of English, articles are mostly written in English. Furthermore,
First of all, English is the medium of instruction and communication for the majority of subjects, English grammar is an important foundation for effective communication in the classrooms. CAPSD (2006) stresses the need for people in Bhutan to be competent in English as the decision for using English as the medium of instruction for many of the subjects taught in school (p.11). Therefore, it is essential for the students to be good at grammar in order for the students to do well in the other subjects in the schools. Jose (2010) says that learners should better study grammar and its beautiful nuances in usage (p.1). This shows the importance for students to study English grammar in the Bhutanese schools.
