The study also investigated theeffect of gender on these two constructs. To this end, 65 participants, both males and females, at a foreign language institute in Qaen, Iranwere asked to fill in two questionnaires:an utonomy questionnaire developed by Spratt, Humphreys, and Chan (2002) and willingness to communicate scale questionnaires designed by McCroskey and Baer(1985).
