The purpose of this study aimed to determine the most appropriate model in the language motivation of the students. In addition, to ensure a significant relationship between the exogenous variable: classroom management, student engagement, and language learning attitudes and the endogenous variable in language motivation. Furthermore, this non-experimental and correlational research design and structural model determine the most appropriate language motivation model. Hence, the sample random sampling technique was used to determine the 400 college students as respondents of the study.  Thus, the statistical used: mean, Pearson r, regression, and Structural Equation Model (SEM). The exogenous variables have a significant correlation with endogenous for which the fifth model is the most result of the study. Classroom management includes managing classroom behavior, specific teaching technique, working with parents, and planning and support; student engagement includes: liking for learning, liking for school, effort and persistence, extracurricular activities and cognitive; language learning attitudes include: self-image, inhibition, risk-taking, ego permeability, motivation and ambiguity influenced language motivation which includes affective, goal orientation and expectancy.
