Abstract

We examined emotional intelligence and personality traits as predictors of foreign language anxiety (FLA) across four foreign language learning skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking). 105 (62.8% female) foreign language students completed measures of emotional intelligence (EI), personality and FLA across the 4 skills. Independently, EI and personality were found to be significant predictors. A combination of EI and personality predicted listening FLA only.
