EFL EFFECTIVE FACTORS: ANXIETY AND MOTIVATION AND THEIR EFFECT ON SAUDI COLLEGE STUDENT'S ACHIEVEMENT

A. Mohammed

Shaqra University (SAUDI ARABIA)
Through my long experience in learning English as a Foreign Language (EFL), I found that so many students in Saudi Arabia feared to learn English. They were very anxious and demotivated. However, no formal studies have been conducted to examine in-depth the connection between the two issues. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine the anxiety and motivational patterns of Saudi college students of English and consider how motivational patterns and anxiety effect on language learning. The subjects were students who are studying English for both specialized and college requirements in the Community College and Faculty of Education, Shaqra University. A brief review of related literature concerns with anxiety and motivation of EFL/ESL learning was conducted involving definitions, classifications, causes of anxiety, and relations with other variables were accompanied. The anxiety levels, motivation and variety of recommendations were also provided. The inspiration for this study stemmed from the observations of anxiety caused by language skills of students and motives can be used to attract our students’ attention to respect learning this language. Being their integrated skills instructor, I feel that it is our responsibility to help them to overcome their weaknesses.
