This paper aims at exploring the relation between the two skills of listening and speaking. In addition, it tries to investigate the presence of any gender differences in this relation. To achieve these ends, the listening and speaking exams marks of (122) EFL students registered in the English 102 on-line compulsory course were analyzed using SPSS. The findings proved the existence of a positive relation between the two skills (r=0.433). The Independent Sample T-Test also proved that there were significant statistical differences at (α ≤ 0.05) level due to gender differences in the correlation between the listening and speaking abilities among Al-Balqa Applied University EFL students in favor of the females.
