ABSTRACT
The article offers tips for teachers to help the reduction of students' anxiety by way of general engagement increment, autonomy promotion, and self-confidence development. Such strategies include the consistent use of flash cards for students to synthesize information from texts and lectures and learn good study habits. Another is the utilization of props in teaching demonstrative lessons so as the information can be retained by students. To teach tips of test-taking precisely and clearly to students for them to avoid changing answers is also suggested.
