dc.description.abstractWhile stress, and the causes that lead to it, is widely documented in studies regarding the teaching profession, this study focuses specifically on teachers of foreign languages and seeks to shed light on whether they are affected by stress in the light of a changing local educational and sociolinguistic scenario. Our main findings reveal indications that stress levels among teachers of foreign languages are considerably high, and that these are not affected by the language that they teach. Furthermore, there are significant stress level differences between teachers in state and church schools, with the former being more negatively affected by stress than the latter. Stress levels are linked to job satisfaction, with those who feel fulfilled by teaching clearly being impacted less by stress factors related to the profession.en_GB
