This study attempted to identify how attitude and motivation and the success in language achievement are correlated. The subjects of this study consisted 73 students who had been learning Lampungese as a local language in Indonesia. The data on the attitude and motivation was arranged in a Likert- Style format and the data on the success in language learning was collected through a test consisting four language skills. The data collected from the questionnaires were analyzed to measure internal consistency of hypothesized scales by using item-to scale coefficient. To determine how the variabels were correlated, correlation analyses were undertaken. The result shows that students’ attitude predicted motivation, and, in turn, their motivation predicted their language performance; it may be interpreted that attitude predicts motivation through the mediation of motivation.
