Personality traits, willingness to communicate, the "Big Five", English as a Foreign Language

Sažetak
This study examined the relationship between personality traits, willingness to communicate and oral proficiency in English as a foreign language. More precisely, the correlations between the variables were explored. Comparisons indicate that there are significant positive correlations between personality traits (except neuroticism and conscientiousness) and willingness to communicate (WTC). Particularly, openness, as one of the Big Five personality traits, correlates positively with all WTC groups, except interpersonal communication. When it comes to personality traits, only agreeableness correlates significantly but negatively with oral proficiency. Among WTC groups, only group discussion correlates significantly and positively with oral proficiency. Although the results of this study do not show causal connections between the variables, but only confirm their interrelationship, they imply that personality traits and WTC may influence learners’ oral proficiency. Therefore it is suggested that foreign language teachers should consider learners’ personality traits and WTC when assessing their oral expression and oral proficiency.
