Abstract

Past literature has consistently highlighted the problem of oral communication apprehension (OCA) among English as foreign language (EFL) learners. However, these results are mostly applicable to developed countries. As such, this study gathers data from the interview with Focus group consisting of 20 EFL students from the faculty of education, Alzytouna University in Libya, in exploring the causes and effects of OCA. The findings of the study revealed that participants feel anxious and nervous while speaking English in front of others. They also mentioned that improper method of teaching is one of the factors that cause apprehension to them.
