Motivation is a force that is a hypothetical factor for human tendencies and improves people's learning and performance. Classrooms are the best place to use this factor to improve the level of knowledge of young learners’ language (for the purposes of this research, young learners are defined as children between age 5-10). A second language requires a strong interest in learning. Teachers in these classes can motivate students to make a healthy and enthusiastic effort. In this paper, the factors related to this topic are examined. Pronunciation and motivation are defined, and the age function in learning is briefly introduced. Previous studies on motivation and pronunciation by other psychologists are described in addition to phonetics and its effect on teaching pronunciation as an important factor in learning a second language along with the fact that children learn English as a second language. This paper sheds light on the differences between teaching situations and the methods required for each situation and discusses the role of motivation and the factors that can affect motivation, besides the types of stimuli and the whole theory of motivation.
