This causal comparative research examines the differences between community college students’ foreign language anxiety levels in traditional and distance learning environments following Krashen’s second language acquisition theory and Kock’s media naturalness theory using the Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (FLCAS). The results of the study add to understanding of foreign language anxiety across different learning environments and will assist instructors and institutions of higher education with meeting the needs of students with various characteristics in their classes.
