|Title:||Explorations in Teachers' Nonverbal Immediacy Behaviors and Students' Willingness to Talk in English|
Department of English, NTNU
This study investigated teachers' nonverbal immediacy behaviors in relation to students' willingness to speak English in class. A sample of 235 students was drawn from two large technology institutions in central Taiwan. The participants were asked to respond to instruments designed to measure the frequency of teachers' nonverbal immediacy behaviors influencing students' willingness to peak English in class. The results of the Pearson correlation indicated that teachers’ nonverbal immediacy behaviors were correlated positively and significantly with students' willingness to talk. Multiple regression analyses revealed that four nonverbal teacher immediacy behaviors-touching, relaxed body position, looking at the boa-rd or notes, and gestures-were significant predictors of students' willingness to talk. Limitations, implications, and suggestions for future research are addressed.
