Abstract

This study reports English speaking anxiety of the fifth grade students at SDN Pakuwon I, Sumedang. It investigates students’ English speaking anxiety levels, their sources, and their coping strategies. This study employed a qualitative research design, implementing the characteristics of a case study. Three kinds of instruments were applied for this study: questionnaires that are quantified and involved 27 students, semi structured interview that is transcribed and analysed, and observation that is recorded and each involved selected 6 students. The first finding is that the students experience low anxiety level (59%), moderate level (26%), and high level (15%). Secondly, the sources of students’ language anxiety are communication apprehension which has the highest average score (2.54), test anxiety which reaches the lower total average score (2.5), and fear of negative evaluation which has the lowest average score (2.21). The last is to find the coping strategies. The low anxiety students showed flight and compromise behaviour. The moderate anxiety students showed flight, aggressive, and compromise behaviour. Then, the high anxiety students showed flight, aggressive, group manipulation, and compromise behaviour. Thus, the coping strategies the students do during the classroom are different kinds of behaviours in every level of students’ anxiety which the higher students’ anxiety level, the more various the coping strategies appear. The result implies that young language learner experienced speaking anxiety in a different level for each individual. The anxiety comes from the three main sources which are communication apprehension, test anxiety and fear of negative evaluation. Additionally, the defense mechanism can be various and different depending on how much anxiety that they have. Based on the results of this study, some limitations are revealed and some recommendations are proposed for English teachers and others who are concerned with English education, especially on EFL subject.
