Abstract

Human being is the most unique creature on earth. Many mysteries cover the species that has been ruling over the earth for centuries. The fact that not a single human being is the same with another human being is already a great mystery. However, they do have the same qualities in terms of tendency of doing something. It is not really the same, but similar in nature. This thesis intends to reveal one of the tendencies in the way human beings learn. In learning, some people get anxious while some others do not, even thought the subject matter in the same - in this case the English language. This makes the writer wonders whether this is just a coincidence or there is a pattern caused by some factors. From the literatures and previous studies, the writer knows that is is likely that the second option is closer to the truth. However, there went the next question – how far this pattern, language anxiety, influences the learners in learning English as foreign language. To find the answer, the writer conducted a research to see how far the connection between language anxiety towards the learners of foreign language is. In this correlation study the writer took the samples from students of Speaking B classes of the English Department of the Widya Mandala Catholic University in the academic year of 2000/2001 as research subjects. This study showed that the correlation was negative and non-significant. Negative correlation means that the higher language anxiety is, the lower the academic achievement is. Non-significant means that the correlation is too weak to be considered to be accepted as being happened to the whole population. In short the result, of this study is there is no significant correlation between Speaking B students’ language anxiety and their academic achievements. The writer hopes that the findings in this thesis help foreign language learners to achieve better in language classes. Besides that, the writer also hopes that the findings will help foreign language teachers as well as educational institutions as a reference on guiding the learners.
