There were two research instruments used in this research, listening test and self-efficacy questionnaire. Based on the data analysis, it was found that the r-obtained was 0.20. It means that there is a correlation between the students’ self-efficacy and their listening comprehension.  As a consequence, the null hypothesis (H0) was rejected and the alternative hypothesis (H1) was accepted. Since the r- obtained (0.20) was lower than the r-table(0.3125), the correlation was not really significant.
