Abstract

This study aims to seek the relationship between English Language Anxiety and Academic Achievement in English. The present study was conducted on a sample of 100 students of Class VII selected randomly from two CBSE affiliated English medium private schools of Fazilka district of Punjab state of India, affiliated to central board of secondary education. Two instruments were employed to collect the data. The first one was Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (FLCAS) by Horwitz, Horwitz & Cope (1986) and secondly the students were given an Achievement Test in English. The obtained scores were analyzed by using Pearson Product Moment co- relation. It has been found that English language anxiety and Achievement in English are negatively correlated. It has also been found that most of the students fall in the categories of slightly anxious to very high anxiety.
