Abstract (2. Language): 
Growing interest among the Police Academy graduates in learning a foreign language has led to reconsideration of the research findings and the conclusions based on the analysis and interpretation of the data collected through a questionnaire designed particu-larly for identification of motive types for language study at the Police Academy.** A thor-ough analysis and interpretation of the data provided the researcher with statistically sig-nificant findings in order to arrive at specific motive types for language study. The research shows that willingness to learn may indicate a valuable motivation type. However, there may also be lack of real motivation underlying endeavours to learn. This article, therefore, will mainly focus on the identification of motives and deal with the problem of lack of motivation in general to propose solution to possible problems associated with learning styles and strategies for successful learning.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Son yıllarda Polis Akademisi mezunları arasında yabancı dil öğrenmeye karşı hızla artan ilgi gözlemlenmektedir. Bu ilgi, güdü tiplerinin belirlenmesi ve güdüleme konusunda, özellikle Polis Akademisi'nde yabancı dil öğreniminde yapılan alan çalışmasında elde edilen anket verilerinin analizi ve yorumuyla ulaşılan bulgu ve sonuçlarının tekrar gözden geçirilmesine yol açmıştır. Yabancı dil çalışmalarında belirli güdü tiplerine ulaşabilmek için verilerin detaylı analizi ve yorumu, araştırmacıya istatistiksel açıdan anlamlı bulgular sağlamıştır. Bu araştırma, öğrenme isteğinin değerli bir güdüleme türü olduğunu göstermektedir. Buna karşın, öğrenme çabalarının arkasında gerçek bir güdüleme eksikliği söz konusu olabilmektedir. Bu makale, bu yüzden, güdü tiplerinin tanımı üzerinde duracak ve başarılı bir öğrenme için gerekli biçim ve stratejileri ile igili olası sorunlara çözüm bula¬bilmek amacıyla genelde güdülemeyi ele alacaktır.
