Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the role of ambiguity tolerance and emotional intelligence in listening comprehension of second language learners. Sixty freshman students who are majoring in English teaching in Arak University are chosen. Oxford placement test (1994) was administered to homogenize students. Thereafter, Second Language Tolerance of Ambiguity Scale (SLTAS) (Ely 1995), Norton's Measurement of Ambiguity Tolerance (1975), and Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i; Bar-On, 1997) were administered to analyze the level of ambiguity tolerance and emotional intelligence of students, respectively. Moreover, the listening part of OPT was used to investigate the students’ listening comprehension. The results of the study reveal that there is a relation among ambiguity tolerance, emotional intelligence and listening comprehension.
