Abstract:

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.
