An investigation of attitude, motivation and anxiety levels of students studying at a faculty of tourism towards vocational English course

The aim of the study is to analyse attitude, motivation and anxiety levels of students at a state university studying at a faculty of tourism towards vocational English course. In the study, quantitative research and survey method were used. 325 students participated in the study voluntarily. Attitude Scale towards Vocational English Course, Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (FLCAS) and Attitude/Motivation Test Battery (AMTB) were used in the research to collect data. At the end of the study, the students' attitude and motivation levels towards vocational English course were at “Agree” level, and their anxiety levels were at “Slightly agree” level. Attitude, motivation and anxiety levels of students did not differ in terms of age. There was a significant difference between attitude, motivation and anxiety levels in terms of department, achievement and additional study. There was a significant difference in anxiety, while there was no significant difference in attitude and motivation levels in terms of gender.  While attitude and anxiety did not differ, motivation differed in terms of tourism experience of the students.
