Foreign Language Anxiety's Forgotten Study: The Case of the Anxious Preservice Teacher
Tum, Danyal Oztas
TESOL Quarterly: A Journal for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages and of Standard English as a Second Dialect, v49 n4 p627-658 Dec 2015
This article argues that nonnative preservice teachers are just as susceptible to foreign language anxiety as are inexperienced language learners, a claim carrying important implications for the EFL classroom. The results of the study described in this article indicate that anxious preservice teachers experience significant levels of language anxiety to a degree that may cause them to avoid using the target language and language-intensive teaching practices in their classrooms. The article also proposes steps toward helping preservice teachers cope with and hopefully overcome their language anxiety.
