초록 Kim, Bo-gang & Kim, Jeong-eun. (2021). Investigating the psychometric features of young language learners foreign language reading anxiety. The Linguistic Association of Korea Journal, 29(4), 1-20. This study investigated characteristics of foreign language (L2) reading anxiety in young learners who learn English by observing descriptive features of their L2 reading anxiety, and identifying components. A total of 70 young language learners aged between eight and thirteen participated in the study. Their English reading anxiety was assessed using the Foreign Language Reading Anxiety Scale (FLRAS) (Saito, Horwitz, & Garza, 1999). Descriptive statistics and a range of principal factor analyses were used to analyze their responses. Descriptive statistics found that child learners feel certain amount of anxiety on the activity of English reading itself, and also, feel anxiety from reading activities such as reading for details. Furthermore, the factor analysis found two major components comprising their reading anxiety: (1) anxiety in English, and (2) anxiety in reading. Pedagogical implications were discussed along with the research findings.
