Guirong Pan, Yiming Zang, Dan Wu


 A survey from students of both Advanced and Ordinary English classes in Qingdao Agricultural University shows that most of the students are motivated by both intrinsic and extrinsic motivations. However, intrinsic motivation is more important than extrinsic motivation in contributing to English learning. There is no difference in anxiety between students in Advanced English class and in Ordinary English class and the attitude of students in Advanced English class is more proper than that of students in Ordinary English class. Therefore, they are more active in English learning than the students in Ordinary English Class are. The higher autonomous learning ability they have, the better the achievement they get.
