Is the teacher responsible for motivating students to study? Or is it each student's own responsibility to be interested in learning?

Responsibility is too a general word.
Resposibility in what? That's what makes all the difference.
I paid for the course so you should help me pass it.

As they progress the study principles should be starting to gel. I must admit I had a giggle atI paid for the course so you should help me pass it.
Older students would definately feel that way.
The motivation usually comes from interest in the undertaken topic in teenagers.

both teachers and students are responsible for the motivation.
One-side motivation cannot work.
But I hate English lessons in our school. Our teacher is paying her attention almost always to the worst students, while my level of English is getting worse because I suffer from the lack of training in. .

I think teacher should be responsible for motivating students to study.Students themselves decide their own result,however.No one could help them except themselves.Students are the center of teaching activity,in which the teacher is just a guider.In my country,there are so many students in a class so the teacher could not control all students in the class.A good teacher will help students find the best way of learning.

It is no use even if they do not have the motivation to work hard. It is true that for some young students, they can rarely motivate themselves, in this case, i think parents should try to motivate their children to work hard by giving some gifts if their children get good results.
