Abstract: This qualitative study, conducted at Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana (UKSW) within the English Language Education Program, investigates speaking anxiety among students in the Speaking for Social Purposes class. Using thematic analysis from semi-structured interviews with five participants, this research delves into two prevalent anxieties: a lack of self-confidence and a fear of making mistakes while speaking English. Participants outlined their struggles, citing issues such as limited vocabulary, fluency challenges, and uncertainty about correct pronunciation as contributors to their anxiety. Strategies to combat these anxieties included preparation, seeking assistance from proficient peers, fostering positive thinking, and using Google Translate for vocabulary support. These findings offer educators valuable insights into addressing speaking anxiety and highlight the need for diverse strategies to support students in overcoming their speaking fears. While this study acknowledges the use of translation tools like Google Translate, it encourages further research to explore potential weaknesses or limitations of such tools in alleviating students' anxiety.
