Abstract: This case study of immigrant student participation in an advanced college reading course (n=10) revealed social identity as a motivational factor in language learning. Motivation often originated in a gap between current and desired identities, a gap which formal language learning served to close. The student's integrative orientation correlated strongly to desired identification with the L2 community. The study's multi-mode research model included an AMTB survey, interviews, and observation.
