Title: Foreign Language Anxiety
Subtitle: A Study of Hungarian Students of English as a Foreign Language
Written By: Zsuzsa Tóth
Description:

Does anxiety about learning and using a foreign language decline as learners
become more competent in the target language, or is anxiety also relevant at
higher levels of proficiency?

This is the question Foreign Language Anxiety and the Advanced Language
Learner sets out to explore. The aim of the book is to give readers an insight
into what role anxiety plays in the language learning and communication
processes of advanced language learners. Specifically, the study examines
how advanced EFL learners’ foreign language anxiety (FLA) can be
characterized; how anxiety relates to other individual differences (cognitive,
affective, personality); and explores the relationship between FLA and various
aspects of learners’ performance and communication experience in the target
language.

The research context is Hungary. The findings, however, are not confined to
the Hungarian EFL setting. In addition to making a contribution to the
clarification of some unresolved issues in language anxiety research--
including the role of proficiency in the development of anxiety, the
relationship between anxiety and other learner variables, and the much-
debated question of whether or not anxiety accounts for differential success
in L2 learning--this study has important implications for language teachers as
well.
