TILA MERONG matinding allergy si Marian Something sa English language. It was posted in one Facebook account na nag-walkout ang beauty ni Mrs. Dantes when one winner in the Juan for All, All for Juan started speaking the King’s language.
Ayun, biglang nag-walkout ang Marianita, her subtle or comic way of saying that she hates English. Ginawa na lang niyang comedy ang pagwo-walkout to show her humor.
Given this scenario, we searched the web kung ano ang tawag sa taong tila may matinding phobia sa foreign language. It’s called xenoglossophobia pala or foreign language anxiety. It is described by Wikipedia as “the feeling of unease, worry, nervousness and apprehension experienced when learning or using a second or foreign language. These feelings may stem from any second language context whether associated with the productive skills of speaking and writing, or the receptive skills of reading and listening.”
