This paper reports initial findings of a study on language anxiety of 205 Malaysian undergraduates of a public university towards learning English as a second language (L2). The Foreign language classroom anxiety scale (FLCAS) (Horwitz et al. 1986) was administered to groups of English language learners. The pre-scores from the questionnaire were calculated for descriptive statistics. This pilot study also aimed to confirm the reliability of the FLCAS as an instrument to measure potential sources of anxiety in language classrooms in Malaysian learning context.
