Recent years have witnessed extensive research on positive psychological factors in the field of foreign language learning. In the current study, we examined how positive psychological factors including trait emotional intelligence (TEI) and academic self-efficacy, and foreign language anxiety (FLA) exert influences on foreign language performance in college students who are learning a foreign language. Specifically, 203 Chinese college students completed three validated questionnaires for measuring their TEI, academic self-efficacy, and FLA levels, and an in-house self-rating questionnaire for estimating their perceived foreign language performance. The results showed that: (a) there were moderate to relatively strong associations between TEI, academic self-efficacy, FLA levels, and their perceived foreign language performance; (b) academic self-efficacy and FLA levels played separate and sequential mediating roles between TEI and perceived foreign language performance. Together, these findings highlight how TEI, academic self-efficacy, and FLA levels contribute to foreign language performance in college students learning a foreign language, and also point out the possibility of the application of these positive psychological factors to mitigating anxiety elicited from learning a foreign language and improving language performance.
