English Language Teaching, v8 n12 p209-222 2015
Foreign language classroom anxiety (FLCA) and self-regulated learning strategies (SRLSs) are important factors that influence language learning process in negative and positive ways respectively. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between FLCA and SRLSs. To this end, 100 university students majoring in TEFL were selected. For collecting data, Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (Horwitz, Horwitz, & Cope, 1986) and Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (Pintrich & De Groot, 1990) were used. To analyze the data, Kendall correlation was run. The results revealed that there is a negative relationship between FLCA (communication apprehension, test anxiety, and fear of negative evaluation) and SRLSs (cognitive strategy use and self-regulation).
