Abstract :
This paper reports on the association between Iranian EFL learners’ motivation and 
self-efficacy. Three measures, English self-efficacy, General self-efficacy, and Language 
Learning Orientations, were used in this study. The participants were 93 male and female 
EFL learners from four different universities in Mashhad, who were at graduate (MA) and 
undergraduate (BA) levels. The results revealed that there exists a significant association 
between EFL learners’ self-efficacy and their intrinsic motivation. Moreover, amotivation, 
among the subscales of motivation, was found to be negatively related to students’ 
self-efficacy. Finally, the results were discussed and pedagogical implications were provided 
in the context of language learning and teaching.
