Title: Reticence and Anxiety in Oral English Lessons
Written By: Meihua Liu
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11497
Description:

This study explores the field of EFL (English as a foreign language)
classroom learning within a formal learning institution. Drawing on
theories and methods from various disciplines, this book explores the
question which has been frustrating language teachers: why do so many
students remain reticent and anxious in language class?
Based on a large-scale survey and a more focused case study, the book
argues persuasively that reticence and anxiety in formal EFL classrooms are
important factors in determining the outcome of language learning. By means
of a triangulated research method, this book examines various aspects of
reticence and anxiety in EFL classroom learning situations. The author
analyses causes and consequences, differences in terms of gender and
proficiency level, and coping strategies.


Contents:

EFL classroom - Oral English Lessons - Participation and Anxiety in Formal
Classroom Learning Situation - A Triangulated Method of Collecting and
Analyzing Data - A Communication Model in Formal Classroom Learning
