Foreign language anxiety in learning Italian as a foreign language

Foreign language anxiety in learning Italian as a foreign language

Ordulj А., Grabar I.

Статья научная

Encouraged by the growing need for communication in a foreign language, which often results in an unpleasant feeling of anxiety or even avoidance of communication, the authors conducted a research to see whether the participants of an Italian language course in one foreign languages school in Croatia experience foreign (Italian) language anxiety. The study was conducted on a sample of 32 learners whose mother tongue is Croatian. The aim of this study was to examine differences in foreign language anxiety with regard to the level and length of learning Italian, the gender, the number of foreign languages that the learners speak, and their shyness. The results showed that groups of learners differ in their foreign language anxiety, depending on their own level of shyness. Learners with pronounced shyness show higher level of language anxiety than the learners of medium and low levels of shyness. Other significant differences were not found probably due to the sample size, the individual characteristics of each student, and a variety of experiences gained in the process of learning a foreign language.

La r'econciliation des deux confessions religieuses dans les oeuvres d’Henri Troyat

Teleshova R.I.

Статья научная

The article is devoted to the representation of the Russian-French world in the writings of Henri Troyat on the example of the description of Orthodox and Catholic churches, as well as individual religious rituals and ceremonies. The highest point of the union of the Catholic and Orthodox faiths is conversion to a different faith, conditioned by the specific fate of individual heroes, the movement of characters to a different environment. The writer is far from considering the dogmatic differences between the two religions. For most of his characters, the fascination with religion is reduced to a set of separate acts.

Various programs offered by European organizations require participants to develop their knowledge of English and communication skills.
