Biases in Self-Ratings of Second Language Proficiency: The Role of Language Anxiety.
MacIntyre, Peter D.; And Others
Language Learning, v47 n2 p265-87 Jun 1997
Examines perceived competence in a second language (L2) as a function of actual competence and language anxiety. Anglophone college students with varied competency in French completed scales of language anxiety and a modified version of the "can-do" test, which assessed their self-perceptions of competence on 26 French tasks. Findings indicate that L2 anxiety, perceived competence, and actual competence intercorrelated. (61 references) (Author/CK)
