Languages of publication
The paper describes the specific effects of language anxiety on foreign language learning. It concerns anxieties related to the four macro-skills (language-skill-specific anxieties), such as listening anxiety, speaking anxiety, writing anxiety, and reading anxiety. In addition, the impact of language anxiety on grammar study is presented. Research has shown that anxious language students suffer significantly during oral activities and that anxiety has a negative impact on students’ attitudes towards language study.
Celem niniejszego artykułu jest przybliżenie pojęcia lęku językowego, opisanie jego wpływu na proces przyswajania głównych kompetencji językowych, a mianowicie: słuchania, pisania, czytania i mówienia. Dodatkowo przedstawiony został wpływ lęku językowego na naukę gramatyki. Badania wykazały, że studenci języków obcych, którzy odczuwają wysoki poziom lęku, najbardziej cierpią podczas ustnych ćwiczeń językowych. Co więcej, lęk językowy wpływa u nich na negatywną postawę wobec nauki języka.
