Genaro R. Dumayas II | Jerlyn G. Balones


Abstract: This study delves into the intricate dynamics of foreign language learning motivation and intercultural effectiveness within the context of Indigenous People college students. Employing a quantitative descriptive-correlational research design, the investigation encompassed 157 participants and was conducted in Davao del Sur, Region XI, Philippines. The study unveiled the pivotal mediating role of cognitive engagement in bridging the relationship between foreign language learning motivation and intercultural effectiveness among these students. The results underscore not only the high levels of motivation, intercultural effectiveness, and cognitive engagement displayed by the participants but also the significant interplay between these variables. Through rigorous statistical analysis, it was elucidated that foreign language learning motivation directly influences both intercultural effectiveness and cognitive engagement. Moreover, cognitive engagement was identified as a substantial mediator, contributing to the enhancement of intercultural effectiveness in the realm of Indigenous People college students' education.
