Abstract
Captivating EFL learners' attention in a learning process is challenging for every teachers. The teachers must employ appropriate treatment and have motivational strategies to maintain students' enthusiasm in learning. Ample research has been conducted to explore teachers' motivational strategies in teaching English of primary and secondary schools. However, little study has been conducted in university level of students. Therefore, this study is aimed to investigate the use of motivational strategies by teachers in one of the Islamic universities in Indonesia. There were three different teachers as the participants of this research. A qualitative research design was employed to collect the data. Three different groups of students were involved for class observation. The data were collected from teachers by conducting classroom observation, interviews and video recording activity. The finding of the research revealed that each teacher has unique motivational strategies to teach EFL university students. Besides, in the context of Islamic-based university, students get more excited to learn English when the teachers were able to make a connection on English materials, the Islamic values and implication in the real life.
