Each country has a different cultural origins and tendency to shape its future. Since Turkey's social, economic and geographical conditions differ from those of other countries, the Turkish education system also differs from that of other countries. Quality education and training occurs through effective communication between institutions, teachers, students and families. However, while managing and directing education, the teacher is undergoing loss of motivation and inefficiency in school environment. In the study we tried to find out and investigate the factors causing loss of motivation for the teachers in language teaching. We interviewed eight Language Lecturers teaching English, French, German, Arabic and Turkish Languages at the College of Foreign Language in various universities in Turkey so as to obtain the data. We asked three open ended questions to the lecturers in our study; “What affects your motivation in classroom environment?”, What are the factors that cause loss of motivation for you?”, What do you do to motivate yourself to teach language?” We used qualitative research method to determine and assess the level of motivation loss, and to compare them regarding the gender of the teachers and the students, the experiences of the teachers and the kinds of the language. The opinions obtained from the lecturers through face to face interview revealed that the implementation of distant-education in English Language courses, indifference of the students to French and German Languages, lack of communication, inadequate social facilities and the alphabet difference of the students coming from Turkic Republics and Arabian Countries were the main reasons for the factors causing motivation loss of the teachers in language teaching.
