Abstract:Foreign language classroom anxiety was the topic of many studies conducted in the past three decades but little is known about the strategies that classroom teachers can use to diminish it. This article presents the first among several empirical studies that assess the impact of music on foreign language classroom anxiety. Sixty middle school children divided in two groups (experimental and control) received two treatments for six weeks. The experimental group learned English through music (by learning songs) and the control group learned English through regular lessons. Results indicated that the anxiety of students from the experimental group diminished significantly compared with their peers from the control group. Implications and limitations of this study are being discussed.
