Sina Student teacher in the field of Arabic education, Farhangian University, Rasul Akram Campus, Ahvaz. 2024 03 03 Abstract\r\nLearning motivation is the psychological processes that guide and maintain students’ behavior towards learning. If students are disinterested and unmotivated towards the lesson, they will not make much progress in that lesson. But if they are interested in the lesson and there is enough motivation in them, they will have more growth and progress in that lesson.In this context, 73 students have been selected as the statistical population, 23 of them from Tizhoshan Farzangan High School (2nd Secondary) of Ahvaz Metropolitan City and 29 from Shahid al-Ghadir High School (2nd Secondary) of Shush Daniyal (AS). And 21 people were from Golestan High School (1st High School) of Aghili region of Getund city.The questionnaires received from these 73 people showed that 60% of them are not interested in Arabic lessons. Finally, we examined the factors of students’ lack of interest in Arabic lessons, which include 6: 1. Failure to state goals 2. Anti-religion and anti-revolutionary propaganda 3. Difficulty of the Arabic language and its rules 4. Use of non-specialist teachers 5. Type of exam questions 6. The number of students in the classroom and the lack of teaching hours were obtained.Then we identified strategies to increase the interest and motivation of students, which include: 1. Stating goals 2. Countering the cultural invasion of religion 3. Encouraging students 4. Creating work groups 5. Appropriate evaluation 6. Presenting literary materials 7. Using various strategies and methods in teaching. After examining an important factor called motivation, the question that arises is: What other factors affect the level of students’ learning?\r\nKeywords: Arabic language teaching, reluctance factors, strategies to increase motivation Abstract\r\nLearning motivation is the psychological processes that guide and maintain students’ behavior towards learning.
