Learning a foreign language has become the inevitable segment of basic education of an individual today, when the process of globalization is increasingly pronounced. A particular motivation is required for learning a foreign language as well as other curricula, which is of great importance from the point of view of its pedagogical significance. Given the widespread use of the concept of motivation, there are different definitions of the same. There are also different types of motivation and motivational theories that are most commonly applied in other sciences. Different definitions and types of motivation as well as motivational theories will be presented in this paper. In addition, various motivational methods and techniques are outlined in practice examples. In the course of the paper, the use of motivational techniques and their significance and impact on the progress and success of foreign language school attendants will be demonstrated, based on the analysis of the results of qualitative descriptive research. The aim of the research is to understand the teacher's understanding of motivational techniques and their way of implementing the teaching process through interviewing. Interpretation transcripts and analysis of the obtained results have led to the recognition that motivational techniques are an integral part of the teaching process and that different types of motivation techniques are applied depending on the teaching content. In addition, the results gave an insight into the effects of motivational techniques on the active participation of students in the teaching process and on the results of their learning.
