Abstract

This study was to investigate the reading strategies employed by the Business English majors in relation to their levels of reading anxiety. The participants were 926 Business English majors from 6 universities in southwest China. The Business English reading strategy questionnaire, the reading anxiety questionnaire and the Business English reading comprehension test were used to collect the data. The results showed that the Business English majors’ reading anxiety had significant negative influence on their use of reading strategies. The less anxious students reported significantly greater use of reading strategies than the more anxious students. In addition, the students with different anxiety levels had significant variations in the choices of individual reading strategies.
