Young Children’s Foreign Language Anxiety

The Case of South Korea

; Jessica M. Morgan-Brown ; Naya Choi

«<p>The ultimate aim of the book is to help teachers, parents, and policymakers activate the minds<br /> rather than the anxiety levels of YLL. The authors truly accomplish this goal by presenting a comprehensive<br /> review of previous literature, and conducting two important studies that first document<br /> the FLA levels of YLL within English immersion institutions, and second examine the effectiveness<br /> of TBLT through a real-world activity.</p>»

«This book examines real-life language use in the classroom from a much-needed non-Eurocentric perspective. Written in an accessible style and replete with comprehensive examples, this book will leave readers equipped with practical insight into improving young children’s language learning environment.»

Hyejeong Ahn, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

«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

«Focusing on young learners in South Korea, this book provides invaluable insights on L2 anxiety from psychological, cognitive, developmental, educational and sociocultural perspectives. The interdisciplinary analysis shows dynamic interaction between the sociocultural context and L2 anxiety, and the specificity of the context and learners, ironically, expands the scope of L2 anxiety research focus in applied linguistics.»
