Several studies have been conducted regarding the motivation of second language learning. This study aimed to investigate the relationship of the learners' sense of ethic identity and their view of their Mandarin teachers and Chinese course on the motivation of Chinese-Filipino adolescent boy in learning Mandarin as a second language. Both the Attitude/Motivation Test Battery-Revised (AMTB-R) and Multigroup Ethnic Identity Measure-Revised (MEIM-R) were used to measure motivation, views of the learners towards their teacher and course and their sense of ethnic identity. Data were obtained from a total of 237 random grade 7 to 4th year high school students using the survey and archival (for the 1st quarter grades of school year 2013-2014 of the participants) method. The mediation analyses showed that motivation fully mediated the relationship between the predictors (Attitude towards Mandarin teacher, Attitude towards Chinese course, and Sense of Ethnic Identity) and the outcome (academic performance).
