Abstract

This study aimed to explore Chinese college students' anxiety when conducting English presentations and its correlation with anxiety in the three stages of English learning. Using a questionnaire survey, this study collected data on college students' anxiety when performing English presentations and analyzed the relationship between these data and anxiety in the three stages of Tobias' Model. This study is the first to correlate and analyse presentation anxiety with Tobias' Model, which fills the research gap in the related field. The findings show that college students generally have high presentation anxiety and feel anxious at different stages, including input, process and output. In addition, it is found that presentation anxiety is closely related to all stages, with the strongest link to the output stage. Based on the results of the study, this paper puts forward suggestions for the presentation session in the English classroom for college students.
