Abstract

This study is motivated by the recent development of information and communication technologies (ICT) applications to language learning in distance mode (DLL) together with the fact that, as yet, little research on affective factors associated with these developments has been carried out. The study consists of a survey that seeks to find correlations between the following affective factors: levels of ICT-related anxiety (AX_ICT); levels of satisfaction with progress (SP); and attitudes towards the role of ICT in distance language learning (AT_ICT). The method of analysis is based on SPSS software. The study concludes that there is a positive correlation between (SP) and (AT_ICT), but there is no correlation between (AX_ICT) and (SP) or (AT_ICT). However, the study shows that if the category “ICT-related anxiety” is parsed into smaller elements, a negative correlation can be established between some of these itemised ICT-related anxiety elements and (SP) and (AT_ICT).
