Why so many students lose interest in English? I think "motivation" is important for this problem. I could know that there are two motivations that are intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation from some books. Then I think there are some conections between losing interests and motivations. I think if there is no motivation, a student lose interests in English. So, I think there are some cases when students lose motivation in English class. When junior high school students( first grade) start learning English in junior high school, many students would have some freshness in English class. This phenomenon is related to instric motivation. But, as the days and months pass, some students might lose their freshness in English. I think this is a first case when student lose interests in English.
Another factor of students having no interest in English also happens in early junior high school. It would be happen in a first time when students meet English. In short, I think some students would not have any stimulus in English when they meet English. If there are no stimula in English, the student would not have any interests in English. This is second cases that I think. So, I think it's also important for teacher how to introduce new English to the students. I think if teacher can introduce well, student will be given a lot of stimulus and motivations for English. I also think the way of teaching English is also important. I think monotonous class or the class that ignor the level of students would lose students' interest. Actually, when I went to teaching practice in junior high school, a monotonous class that only focused on textbook was not good for students. Anyway, teacher also should devise the way of teachinig English class for students.
Lastly, I think it's also important the continuance that stimulate the intellectual curiosity for students. It's important for students to get something discovery or surprise.
