Description

In spite of the advantages it provides especially for tertiary level students, taking a course online may turn out to be an anxious endeavour for EFL learners. While this apprehension is reported to be related to the very natural characteristics of the learning environment itself such as obligation of using computers and internet, it may also be associated with the online delivery mode of teaching/learning any course On the other hand, earlier anxiety experiences may account for a part of the anxiety the students develop in online settings. In this regard, this study identified that the foreign language anxiety Turkish EFL learners experienced earlier in their classroom learning could be associated with the anxiety developed in online environment; and the foreign language classroom anxiety predicts the online learning anxiety to a significant extent. To this end, the foreign language classroom anxiety scale and the online learning anxiety scale were conducted on 476 students taking an obligatory English language course online for the first time.
