|Abstract:||Self-determined motivation is fostered when students experience autonomy in the learning process. This study examined the English students' motivation in two countries that arguably differ in the value placed on individualism and collectivism: Japan and Switzerland. Contrary to expectation, autonomy was the most important predictor of motivation in both countries.|
