Abstract

Public speaking anxiety refers to the fear and worry people have when holding public speeches. It is not only a disrupting type of anxiety, but also a highly pervasive one. Thus, understanding public speaking anxiety is very important. That is why this study, containing much of the current knowledge and discoveries on public speaking anxiety, is conducted. By now, the main cause of public speaking anxiety is thought to be related to negative self- image. Besides, the unfamiliarity towards words, the lack of experience, unfamiliar environment, new audience, status difference between speakers and listeners, and the position of speakers and audiences etc. are all stimuli of public speaking anxiety. Since public speaking anxiety is found to exert negative effect on the speaker both physically and emotionally, general methods for reducing public speaking anxiety have been proposed, including communication orientation motivation, cognitive restructuring, visualization, and systematic desensitization.
