Sources of Anxiety among Saudi Female EFL Student Teachers during Their Practicum

Auther : Dr. Maysoon A. Dakhiel

Objectives: The present study investigates the sources that arouse anxiety among Saudi female EFL student teachers during their practicum.
Method: It adopted the analytical descriptive approach with a sample that comprised 22 female students enrolled in a Teaching Practicum course in the Faculty of Education at the University of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. A five-points Likert-type questionnaire with four domains was developed by the researcher and administered to the participants to figure out the sources of anxiety during practicum.
Results: Descriptive analysis of the responses to the questionnaire showed four sources of anxiety, including cooperating school, mentors, student teachers, and foreign language teaching instructions. Findings also revealed that the domain related to student teachers constituted the highest level of anxiety, whereas the domain of sources related to the mentor had the least effect on the participants' anxiety level.
Conclusion: The researcher suggests important procedures to reduce student teachers' anxiety during their practicum, such as providing more support by mentors and cooperating teachers, increasing the number of follow-up visits, and affording enough time to student teachers during field visits.

Keywords: Anxiety, student teachers, practicum, EFL.
