The Achievement Emotions Questionnaire - Foreign Language Class (AEQ-FLC) was recently developed and validated to measure students' emotions in English as a foreign language (EFL) classrooms. The purpose for this preliminary study was the Chinese translation (forward and back translation, student focus group discussion, and final revision) of the AEQ-FLC for university students in Taiwan and validate the adapted Chinese version in the unique context of a blended EFL course with the face-to-face sessions taking place in a computer lab. Research participants were 2,118 students who volunteered to complete the adapted Chinese AEQ-FLC during the 16th week of the 18-week course. The sample was subdivided randomly for exploratory factor analysis (EFA; N = 400) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA; N = 1,718). The EFA extracted three emotion constructs (Enjoyment, Anxiety, and Boredom) and CFA results indicated acceptable model fit. Good reliability of the final model was found using Cronbach's alpha. Given the unique computer lab face-to-face context of the EFL course, the initial adapted Chinese AEQ-FLC was able to measure salient emotions previously identified in the field of language learning emotions, including foreign language anxiety, enjoyment, and boredom (FLA, FLE, and FLB). The current adapted scale will be further revised to better incorporate factors in the original AEQ-FLC to measure students' emotions for blended courses EFL face-to-face computer lab sessions.
