However, anxiety and fear occur in the process of communicating in English, such anxiety and fear as communication apprehension. Communication apprehension has been a key factor to hinder English learning (Matsuoka, 2008). This study aimed to determine the differences of communication apprehension between different genders and the correlation between academic achievement and communication apprehension. A quantitative research was employed using the questionnaire as a tool to investigate 200 Chinese college students in English class from Guangdong University of Foreign Studies who were randomly selected. Results of T-test showed that there is no significant difference of communication apprehension between female and male students. Results of Pearson-Moment Correlation showed that there is a negative relationship between students’ academic achievement and communication apprehension.
