Abstract

This article aimed to investigate the relationship between willingness to communicate and learners’ oral proficiency in English. For this purpose, this study aimed to find out the link between WTC and oral language competency in English. It looked at the relationship between WTC and other characteristics such as self-confidence, desire to communicate, and anxiety. Lastly, It targeted to see if are there any gender-based differences in WTC and learners’ oral proficiency in English. The participants were 88 male and 87 female undergraduate students. The correlational analysis showed a significant correlation between the variables. T-test however highlighted non-significant gender-based differences. This study would aid in raising awareness about having good self-confidence level, a strong desire to communicate and a stress-free atmosphere for successful language learning.
