Abstract: Over the past years, the concept of L2 engagement has attracted increasing attention due to its positive commitment to successful learning outcomes and positive experiences. The present study applied an explanatory sequential design to uncover the English learners’ classroom engagement within the Chinese high school context and the influence of L2 motivation, classroom social climate, and multimodal pedagogy. The convergent results showed that the students had positive tendencies in all aspects, revealing their generally positive learning experience within the language classroom, while scores of classroom engagement were found to have been relatively lower. The SEM results verified that L2 motivation, the perceived classroom climate, and multimodal pedagogy effect all directly predicted participants’ engagement and L2 motivation was the strongest predictor of classroom engagement. Students highlighted much more on the significance of using multimodal pedagogic discourse and texts, which yields more pedagogical implications.
