This “Opinion” discusses the importance of engagement in second language acquisition, emphasizing that motivation alone is insufficient for successful learning. Drawing on research, it highlights the multifaceted nature of engagement, examining its behavioral, cognitive, emotional, and social aspects. By focusing on the central roles of behavioral and cognitive engagement, the paper demonstrates the interrelatedness of these aspects and their collective impact on learning outcomes. To foster effective foreign language learning, the author suggests leveraging these engagement characteristics and evaluating learners’ efforts from an integrated perspective.
