Abstract|ملخص البحث

This research paper discusses the relation between oral communication apprehension (CA) and communication competence (CC). There is a pronounced link between oral CA and CC in English language learners. Students who have English either as their second or a foreign language face considerable difficulty in conversing due to a natural apprehension and lack of confidence relating to correctness, fluency and other factors. This study investigates the major role CA and CC play in English language or second/foreign language learning through perfection and imperfection of linguistic repertoire, grammatical construction, social context, motivation, willingness to communicate, and teaching techniques. The paper concludes with a number of recommendations, such as providing motivation through different motivational activities, encouraging oral communication by means of suggested strategies, and designing an English language learning curriculum in accordance with the backgrounds of the target students.
