|The Journal of Studies in Language 28.2, 219-240. This study examines the English anxiety of 323 Korean elementary students in order to investigate the level of anxiety, factors contributing to the anxiety, and the differences of anxiety across such backgrounds as level, grade, gender, and language experience. The data were collected using the Korean version of Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (FLCAS). The results reveal that the Korean elementary students experience significantly lower level of anxiety than the adolescent or adult subjects in other studies. In addition, the study presents four factors leading to English classroom anxiety. They include anxiety & fear, confidence & comfortableness, competition & comparison, and avoidance & apathy. The study also shows some significant group differences. The more proficient in English, the less anxious the students are. The more exposed to English-speaking world, the less anxious. Boys are more anxious than girls. Among the grades, in particular, there is a significant difference only between third and sixth grades.
