The Influence of Anxiety upon Achievement in EFL by Japanese Students.
Pite, Dave
This study investigated the relationships between language anxiety and achievement in oral English performance by Japanese students of English as a foreign language (EFL). Students' anxiety about situations requiring oral ability was measured using the Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale, and compared statistically with a measure of their actual ability. Subjects were 67 students at a Japanese high school. Results indicate no correlation between anxiety and oral English performance. Several explanations for this variation from findings in North America are considered. The instruments used in the study are appended. (Contains 73 references) (MSE)
