What I want to prove at the end that MacIntyr’s Model 1998 (the Pyramid model is still valid till now for educators but which educators??????? Education or communication we need to specify In highlighting the importance of WTC, MacIntyre (2007) asserted that “WTC offers the opportunity to integrate psychological, linguistic, educational, and communicative approaches to L2 research that typically have been independent of each other and it may be seen as both an individual difference factor facilitating L2 acquisition, especially in a pedagogical system that emphasizes communication, and as a nonlinguistic outcome of the language learning process” (564).
So we need to look at the development of this model (origin) going deeply
Historical development of WTC model
2.2.1 Early model by McCrosky (1985): WTC in L1 (first language)
2.2.2 Modified version of WTC by McIntyre (94’, ’96, ’98): WTC in L2 (second language)
18.104.22.168 94’, 96’, 98’ models
22.214.171.124 Situational variables
126.96.36.199 Enduring variables
We need to refer to the figure (like 1 or 2, 3) as we need to draw the shape of every model.
So in my opinion to prove that MacIntyr’s Model 1998 is still relevant till now we need to look at other models Like THE SOCIAL CONTEXT MODEL Clément’s (1980; Clément & Kruidenier, 1985) social context model does not deal with L2 usage, but describes the interrelations among
interethnic contact,L2 confidence,L2 competence, and L2 identity we can find this model in WILLINGNESS TO COMMUNICATE IN A SECOND LANGUAGE The Effects of Context, Norms, and Vitality

and look at the opinions of critics as well and one more model during reading we can discover. What do you think is there any other ideas?
We need to look at the historical and implicated (implication) level of these models. Critics as well
