Institutional Repository | Satya Wacana Christian University: Foreign Language Anxiety Experienced by the First-Year Ed Students of SWCU

Foreign language anxiety (FLA) is a phenomenal issue and mainly a negative factor which can hamper foreign language learning (FLL). By knowing the fact that FLA has negative impact on the achievement of FLL, this study was conducted to investigate the level of FLA experienced by the first-year ED students, who attended ED, Satya Wacana Christian University in August 2011. This study was also aimed to know what type of FLA which was frequently experienced and how the students in each level experienced certain type of FLA. Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (FLCAS), proposed by Horwitz, Horwitz, and Cope (1986) which was translated to Indonesian, was used in collecting the data. The FLCAS covers three components of FLA, which are communication apprehension, test anxiety, and fear of negative evaluation. The questionnaire was administered to 43 first-year ED students. A descriptive narrative analysis was used to analyze th e participants’ responses. The finding suggested that the existence of FLA was obviously clear. It was found that the participants experienced various levels of FLA, which were at “very relaxed” level (6.98%), “relaxed” level (37.21%), “anxious” level (39.53%), and “mildly anxious” level (16.28%). In addition, test anxiety was found as the type of FLA which was frequently experienced by the first-year ED students, followed by communication apprehension, then fear of negative evaluation. They also experienced FLA in terms of nervousness and confusion in speaking or answering questions in English. Also, they were afraid of being laughed or being less competent than their peers.

Key words: speaking anxiety, tactics, tricks, strategies Introduction - EXPLORING THE SPEAKING ANXIETY OF ELEMENTARY LEVEL PRIVATE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS OF SOUTH KALIMANTAN AND ATTEMPTS TO SOLVE

Tanveer (2007:1) states in his study that such statements are commonly uttered by foreign language learners and are too familiar to the foreign language teachers. These statements indicate an important problem that the majority of students face in learning and particularly speaking a second or foreign language. Many learners express their inability and sometimes even acknowledge their failure in learning to speak a second/foreign language. These learners may be good at learning other skills, but when it comes to learning to speak another language, they claim to have a “mental block‟ against it (Horwitz et al., 1986: 125). What then, hinders or stops them to succeed in learning a second/foreign language? In many cases, students’ feelings of stress, anxiety or nervousness may hinder their language learning and performance abilities. Theorists and second language acquisition (SLA) researchers have frequently demonstrated that these feelings or anxiety are specifically associated with learning and speaking a second/foreign language, which distinguishes L2/FL learning from learning other skills or subjects. Both teachers and students are aware and generally feel strongly that anxiety is a major factor to be overcome when learning to speak another language.

Firms create their vision and mission statements in written form and announce to their employees and external shareholders. However, just getting vision and mission statements on the walls and web sites of the company is not sufficient (Benligiray et al., 2013). To have an efficient vision and mission, it is necessary to share them with the employees. Sharing vision and missions mean not to just tell, also make the statements being learning, adopting and exercising by the employees. Leaders are responsible for creating and maintaining vision and mission statements, but it can be achieved through whole employees in an organization. (Stovel and Bontis, 2002). After the employees adopt the vision and mission of the firm, they can make over into their own missions to achieve the overall goals of the organization. Several works suggest that vision and mission of an organization can impact positively on employee performance providing a high levels of commitment of the employees and shaping their behaviors in line with organization’s objectives (Bart et al., 2001; Campbell, 1997; Collins and Poras, 1996; Ireland and Hitt, 1992; Klemm et al., 1991). A vision and mission statement for the organization can serve as powerful vehicles to help achieve shared understanding and support from employees for the firm’s strategic plan road map. Employees want to believe that their efforts are important in supporting the organization to achieve exciting, satisfying and worthy goals (Stokely, 2004).

The Determinants of Demand for Private Tutoring in South Korea

The Determinants of Demand for Private Tutoring in South Korea

Less likely to participate in PT are students in large-sized schools and private schools, although under the standardized regimen of formal schooling in South Korea, private and public schools are indistinguishable in terms of student fees, overall school finance, and curriculum. In areas under the EP, students are even randomly assigned between public and private schools. A possible reason as to why private school students participate less in PT may be explained by the key difference between private and public schools in South Korea. That is, public school teachers and principals serve a limited term in one school before rotating to another. This rotation system hinders a sense of belonging and makes it difficult for principals to establish authority. Results reveal that students at large-sized schools are less likely to participate in PT than those at small-sized schools. On the one hand, this suggests the possibility that students in large schools are more polarized, with a group of active participants at one end of the continuum and a large group of students who did not participate in PT at the other. On the other hand, it is possible that parents with children at small-sized schools are able to interact and network more with other parents and share their experiences about PT, generating more interest, thereby promoting the probability to participate in PT. Households in Seoul and other metropolitan areas are more likely to purchase PT than those in suburban areas. Parents residing in Seoul are 22% more likely to participate in PT and those in metropolitan areas are 9% more likely to choose PT than those living in suburban areas.

The Influence of Social Factors on Children’s Achievement of Acquiring Second Language Chapter III V

Validity is the extent to which a concept, conclusion or measurement is well-founded and corresponds accurately to the real world. The word "valid" is derived from the Latin validus, meaning strong. The validity of a measurement tool is considered to be the degree to which the tool measures what it claims to measure; in this case, the validity is an equivalent to accuracy. According to Situmorang and Muslich (2014: 86), for a descriptive study that requires data or fact and usually simply uses questionnaires, validity which is often used is a surface validity. If the respondents can understand all the questions in the questionnaire without ambiguity, it is already said to be a valid questionnaires.

Reading anxiety of the students of management economics faculty of Sanata Dharma University.

As a conclusion, these research findings did not match the hypothesis which elaborated before. At first, it was assumed that if students’ anxieties were high, their reading achievement would be low. Moreover, if students’ anxieties were low, their reading achievement would be high. In contrast, the findings revealed that even if Management Economics students’ reading anxiety was low, their reading achievement was also low. Thus, reading anxiety did not affect students’ achievement. It is assumed that there might be other factors causing the students’ low reading achievement.

Considerations and characteristics for designing English speaking materials for the students of Leonardo Vocational High School.

According to Caswell and Campbell (1935), “curriculum is defined as composed of all the experiences children have under the guidance of the teachers.... Thus, curriculum is considered as a field of study represents no strictly limited body of content, but rather a processor procedure (p. 66, 70). The definition is strengthened by Applebee (1974), “experience is the best of all schools.... the ideal curriculum consists of well-selected materials” (p. 119). The English teachers are responsible to handle the students using the designed experiences. Therefore, they have the right to create the curriculum to the students. The set experiences should be suitable to the needs of the students to achieve the goal of study.
