This research adopted a survey method to collect quantitative data. The data were collected from randomly selected sample of 300 undergraduate male and female students.

Means and standard deviations of data were computed by analyzing the data by The SPSS program. Furthermore, T-test was calculated to determine the motivational factors and gender differences in ESL learning.
