Additionally, the vast majority of this research has adopted quantitative techniques to identify the factors causing language anxiety. Therefore, this paper attempts to reduce this gap perceived in the literature by exploring the factors causi...

Oral communication strategy (OCS) literature reveals that the vast majority of relevant researcher has adopted qualitative approaches to identify the OCSs used by second language (L2)/ foreign language (FL) learners.The problem in investigating the OCSs through solely qualitative techniques lies in the fact that participants, when performing limited qualitative tasks, cannot employ all the OCSs they actually utilize in reality or have in their own OCS repertoire. Additionally, it is argued that ...
