Title:Chinese Undergraduates Anxieties: English and Its Effects on Chinese Undergrad Students
Author(s):Wardell, Eric
Subject(s):Chinese, Undergraduates, English, Anxiety, Stress
Abstract:This project focuses on Chinese student and their anxieties with English and how they express these anxieties. It seems as if many international Chinese students use their fears of English as an excuse to segregate themselves with people nationally and ethnically similar to themselves. This project also focuses on why Chinese students must feel like they have completely mastered the English language to feel truly effective in speaking English.
