ABSTRACT

This study investigates the perceived levels of anxiety experienced by five English language students in a regular university setting. The results indicate that some levels of anxiety were present in the participants' classes. This study found out that there are three major sources of anxiety in English classrooms. These are: the individual student's self-perceived English proficiency, their fear of negative evaluation, and fear of speaking activities. Further, to reduce their anxiety in the classroom, the students provided two suggestions: helpful teachers and good relationship with classmates. The implications of this study include encouraging teachers to enrich their awareness of English language anxiety, carefully dealing with anxiety-provoking situations, encouraging teachers’use of various teaching strategies, and encouraging students’ interaction in the classroom.
