The study is being done as part of an investigation of foreign language acquisition in the Department of Applied Linguistics and Communication, Birkbeck, University of London and the University College of Teacher Education, Vienna/Krems. This study wants to explore the relationship between affective variables in the (foreign) language class using a web survey. More specifically, it wants to explore links between (foreign) language enjoyment, (foreign) language anxiety, motivation and trait emotional intelligence in both German and English classes. Data will be collected from students in upper secondary school and students at University Colleges of Teacher Education as well as students enrolled in teacher education programmes at Austrian universities who study English and German. The study has received ethical approval from the research ethics committee of the University of London. Both participants and their teachers will remain totally anonymous.
