The students’ learning style score was taken from the questionnaire whereas the student’ achievement in listening was taken from scoring. Based on the data analysis, it was found that the r-obtained (-.084) was lower than r-table (0.1765). then the level of probability (p) significance (sig.2-tailed) was .443. It means that p (.443) was higher than .05. It means that null hypothesis (H0) is accepted and the alternative hypothesis (Ha) is rejected. From the research finding, it can be concluded that there was no significant relationship between students’ learning style and their achievement in listening skill.
