Young Children's Foreign Language Anxiety: The Case of South Korea


Add your own review!

Overview

This book investigates the effects of foreign language anxiety (FLA) on young language learners, using as a basis for observation the early childhood English education industry in South Korea that has arisen as a result of English fever. The authors combine existing knowledge on the topic of FLA together with original research on FLA in young language learners to fill a large gap in knowledge with regards to this understudied and distinct group of learners. The book includes suggestions for alleviating FLA and encouraging foreign language enjoyment, which can be implemented by parents, teachers and policymakers and which will ultimately facilitate more effective language learning and support children's psychosocial wellbeing.

This excellent book shows that children need a nurturing and playful learning environment to become happy and successful foreign language learners. It reflects a powerful new positive psychology perspective that stands up against deficit thinking and undue pressure in classrooms and promotes a more informed and optimistic view of language learning.--Jean-Marc Dewaele, Birkbeck, University of London, UK
