Abstract

Teaching English as a foreign language/second language calls for intensive attention of students with involvement and dedication. There are several cognitive and linguistic barriers associated with anxiety viz., strict class room, fear of making mistakes, variations in self perception, linguistic difficulties, pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary which affect their effectiveness in communication. Once the learners are freed from the clutches of unnecessary anxieties, there is a large scope for their effective learning and ultimately their English communication skill too can be developed who are learning English as Second Language focusing Odia learners studying at engineering Colleges in Odisha.
