Abstract

The objective of this study was to describe the correlation between learners’ language anxiety and their speaking ability. The method which was used in this research was quantitative. The population of this research was the first and the scond grades students of MTs. Jabal Nuur Kediri. There were 55 students chose as the sample. There were two instruments in collecting the data; the first instrument was to measure students’ anxiety in learning English as a foreign language, in this case, Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (FLCAS) which was developed by Howirtz; the second instrument was to measure students’ speaking skill, in this research, speaking test was implemented. The data were collected and calculated by using Kedall’s tau-b correlation coefficient. The basis for decision making, if the significance value (sig.) is less than 0.05 then there is a relationship between the two variables. From the data it can be seen that the significance value indicates 0.012 so it can be concluded that there is a significant relationship between the two variables. To find out how strong the relationship between the two variables is, it can be seen from the value of the correlation coefficient shows 0.244 shows that the level of the relationship is both weak and has a negative attribute, which means that if student anxiety increases, the student's reading achievement decreases. From the results of table independent t- test, it can be seen that the value of the significance of anxiety is 0.000 (0.000 < 0.05). So, it can be concluded that H0 is rejected. It is compared with the value of t table ( df = 53, t = 2.00575), then H0 is rejected ( 12.847 > 2.00575). So it can be stated that there in difference in anxiety levels in class 7b and 8b (t table< t count).
