Motivation is defined as something that motivates a person to do something with the aim of achieving success. Without strong motivation, learning a new language would be a tiring and blurry journey. In this study, motivational factors that influence students at Universiti Teknologi Mara Kelantan Branch (UiTMCK) to learn Mandarin were analyzed. The main objective of this study is to identify what are the factors that motivate these students in learning Mandarin and also, discover the main motivational factors that encourage them to learn Mandarin. The respondents were 100 students from three different study programs, namely Business Management, Accounting, and Computer Science and Mathematics. This study used a quantitative method using questionnaires and interviews to obtain data related to motivational factors that encourage these students to learn Mandarin. The findings revealed, even though these students are from three different study programs, they share similarities regarding the main factors that motivate them to learn Mandarin, which are career and communication with the Chinese community. In addition, the findings also showed that the pattern of the students’ motivation factors is closely related to the conditions, syllabus content, and learning outcomes of the study program taken.his electronic document is a “live” template and already defines the components of your paper [title, text, heads, etc.] in its style sheet.
