Therefore this study sought to investigate the students’ classroom emotions and homework emotions in learning English and Mathematics. This study also looked into students’ grade performance in English and Mathematics since the implementation of PPSMI and their preference in the continuation of learning Mathematics in English. 250 randomly selected form four students from two schools in the district of Petaling Perdana participated in this study. Data were collected using the survey method and were analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Based on the collected data, the findings showed that students’ have pleasant classroom emotion and homework emotion for English and Mathematics classroom learning. Furthermore, there is significant relationship between classroom emotions and homework emotions in English and Mathematics. Students also showed that they have higher pleasant Mathematics classroom and homework emotions as compared to English classroom and homework emotions. In term of determining the contribution of the significant predictor of English classroom emotions, the results revealed that English homework emotions contributed 62.6% to the variance of English classroom emotions.
