Abstract:

English, French, and German foreign language teacher trainees' reading attitudes in both their native language and a foreign language were investigated in terms of their feelings of anxiety within the subdimensions of comfort, self-perception, self-concept, and value. The grade point average scores of the teacher trainees were also considered in order to investigate whether or not these had an influential role on foreign language reading attitude. Foreign language teacher trainees enrolled at a university in Turkey completed 230 valid questionnaires. Results indicated that the teacher trainees were more anxious while reading in a foreign language compared to their native language.
