    Each participant’s global competence score and the motivation score were calculated by adding the scores of the 15 items. The scores could range from a low of 15 to a maximum of 75. Upon analyzing the result, the Spearman rank-order correlation test shows that there was a significant positive relationship between the participants’ global competence score and the language learning motivation score. For the four categories of motivation, the correlation for integrativeness was 0.302, for Instrumental orientation was 0.312, for attitudes and beliefs was 0.260, and for parental encouragement is 0.085. Integrative motivation comes from learner’s desire to become a part of the language community. The instrumental orientation motivation refers to the desire for particular outcome such as employment or business opportunities.
