Spielmann, Guy; Radnofsky, Mary L.
Modern Language Journal, v85 n2 p259-78 Sum 2001
Examines the role of tension in the process of instructed second/foreign language acquisition on the basis of findings from a comprehensive ethnography of the 7-week intensive beginners' class in the summer French School of Middlebury College. This project completes and challenges the current research paradigm on language anxiety as it shifts the focus on the negative (anxiety) to a study of tension. (Author/VWL)
