Li, Nanyun and Park, Hyesook. The Relationships of Self-directed Learning Readiness and Motivation with the English Proficiency of Korean EFL Learners. Studies in English Language & Literature 45.4 (2019): 153-181. This study aims to explore the relationships between self-directed learning readiness (SDLR), motivation, and English proficiency of Korean EFL learners. A questionnaire was administered to collect data on background information, SDLR, motivation, and the English proficiency of 234 Korean university students. The participants were divided into two levels according to their SDLR scores: a low-level group of SDLR (LSG) and a high-level group of SDLR (HSG). Descriptive statistics, ANOVA, MANOVA, Pearson correlation, and regression were used to analyze the data. Results showed significant differences in English proficiency and motivation according to the different SDLR levels. The three variables were significantly correlated overall, but SDLR had a closer correlation with English proficiency. Results further indicated that L2 learning experience and ideal L2 self were strongly connected with SDLR. Finally, SDLR and L2 learning experience were confirmed to be predictors of English proficiency. From the results, suggestions for enhancing L2 learners SDLR and English proficiency are given.
