Therefore, this research aims to find the relationship between listening anxiety and listening comprehension of English department students who had taken Basic Listening class at Universitas Negeri Padang. The type of research used in this research was quantitative research. The population of this research was the second year students in Basic Listening Class of English Department. The sample was 30 students who were chosen randomly from the total population using Simple Random Sampling. The data were collected through questionnaire and an English Listening test using TOEIC test. The results showed that Foreign Language Listening Anxiety (FLLA) and Listening Comprehension (LC) have a negative correlation (r= -.006) which indicates that high anxiety blocks the processing of listening anxiety, and when the higher anxiety the students have, the lower listening comprehension they make. Further research related to listening comprehension and listening anxiety is suggested to do.
