    Interests in early learning of foreign languages have been increasing in our country recently. Some kindergartens have already included it in the programme. The methods and forms of teaching vary as well as the interest of children to learn. In my diploma work I have addressed the children's motivation. Motivation is a complex concept, which is also recognized by various experts in the fields of psychology, pedagogy and andragogy, which I present in the theoretical part of the diploma paper. I also focus on the methods and approaches that teachers are using in teaching. The aim of the empirical part was to research which of the methods teachers in teaching English at pre-school level use and also which ones they consider to be the best for children's motivation. Another aim of the survey was to investigate when children prefer to participate in English lessons and what they like best. The overall conclusion is that teachers use similar methods and approaches for teaching English, but they use them in different ways. Children like to participate in learning when there is the presence of strong stimuli (visual or auditory). They are also motivated by the use of humor.
