Keywords: motivation, literature, language learning, fairy-tale

Abs Changing motivational patterns in a FL classroom environment have prompted teachers to utilise as many inventive ideas and tools as possible. This paper points out that importance and significance of employing literature when teaching English to university students. Literature is mainly characterised with regard to its relevance, emphasising the fact that contemporary and modern literary tests serve the methodological purpose most profoundly. However, the use of fairy-tales strongly supports the argumentation of the L2 motivational self system, thus resulting in several aspects of literary genres. This paper aims to highlight one of the most significant motivational theories underlining the validity and merits of applying literature, especially fairy-tales in order to enhance and improve students’ attitudes and motivation when learning a language tract text.
