Many institutions providing Japanese language education require their learners to interact with native Japanese speakers outside the classroom. Learners often feel more anxious about their ability to use Japanese outside the classroom while the nature of these anxieties is still not well-understood. This project investigated the concerns of intermediate-level learners during an off-campus interview activity. Pre- and post-surveys were employed to determine the nature of learners' general concerns about their ability and self-perceived performance during the activity. The results provide a clearer understanding of learners' types of anxieties and the self-perceived changes they observed in this regard.
