Language Anxiety: Up Close and Personal

Those who study a foreign language have to venture through many processes and overcome obstacles, so that they'll be successful in the study of that language. Being a foreign language learner myself, I can testify from personal experience that foreign language anxiety is one of those obstacles. This condition of foreign language anxiety has been studied of course, but by those I feel can't truly understand it due to being a non-foreign language student. Also, researchers have studied big groups instead of focusing on the individual. Therefore, by believing I am someone who has experienced this condition, I aspire to further clarify language anxiety a little closer under the microscope.
