Results showed that the majority of the respondents came from the college of arts sciences and most of them were Kalanguya and Igorot while their academic performance is qualitatively described as satisfactory. The level of English language learning emotions of the respondents along anxiety, motivation, and gratitude is high. Significant differences were observed in their level of motivation and gratitude but none in their level of anxiety when grouped according to profile variables. Further, there is a significant correlation between the English language learning emotions of the respondents along with motivation and gratitude but their level of emotions along anxiety did not correlate with either their level of motivation or their level of gratitude. After analysis of the results of the study, its contributions were thematically categorized into addressing anxiety in a multicultural classroom, creating a learning atmosphere of high motivation, and teaching gratefulness alongside language skills, which are deemed necessary to enhance English language learning in the university.
