The purpose of this research is to investigate whether there is a direct correlation between learning motivation, concentration and vocabulary variables and listening comprehension skill in the Japanese language. Research was conducted at Riau University to students majoring in the Japanese language. The research makes use of path analysis. Data collection was carried out by using three instruments and one Japanese listening comprehension test; (1) test instrument of learning motivation, (2) test instrument of learning concentration, and (3) test instrument of vocabulary acquisition or mastery and Japanese listening comprehension test. As the sampling technique used was total sampling, the population in this study was the whole 52 fourth semester students at Riau University. The hypothesis test shows -0.311 for correlation coefficient between learning motivation and listening comprehension skill, 0,309 for correlation coefficient between concentrations and listening comprehension skill, 0.281 for correlation coefficient between vocabulary mastery and listening comprehension skill, 0.287 for correlation coefficient between learning motivation and vocabulary mastery. Whereas the correlation coefficient between concentration and vocabulary is 0.410 and the correlation coefficient between motivation and concentration is 0.451. The findings can be used as a theoretical basis to do other research at the Japanese Language Department throughout Indonesia in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The findings can also be used as a reference to develop similar research in another place, especially when it has similar problems and conditions in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
