چکیده    motivation for learning a new language is both self and time-oriented. the language learner’s motivation experiences gradual fluctuation over time and the view of oneself is different on each timescale of the study. interaction among different timescales throughout the second language development (sld) is a novel area of investigation (de bot, 2015). in order to probe this interactive nature, the present study tried to examine the motivational dynamics of a group of language learners in longer timescales composed of a number of tasks performed on shorter timescales. to this end, a group of university students were surveyed at the onset, while performing tasks and at the end of the course to better picture the interplay of different motivational themes over time. the results revealed different manifestations of components of l2 motivational self system (l2mss) over different timescales of the study. apart from this evolutionary manifestation of l2mss components, annova results revealed significant difference between scores of each individual component among all three timescales. in sum, results of the study confirmed temporal and visionary variation in participants’ motivation. finally, some implications were driven from the findings of the study.
