    Abstract

The aim of the current study is to identity the relationship between EFL learners’ self-efficacy and identity and to identify gender differences and those related to nationality between the study sub-groups. The sample consisted of 320 male and female EFL undergraduate university students at two state universities in Egypt and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Two scales (the EFL self-efficacy and the EFL identity) were prepared by the researchers to collect quantitative data, which were analyzed using t-test and correlation coefficient. In addition, qualitative data was collected through in-depth semi-structured interviews with 12 of the participants. The findings of the study revealed a statistically-significant correlation between self-efficacy and identity of the study participants. Statistically-significant differences were also found between the study sub-groups in all dimensions of identity (except the social dimension) favoring the female and Egyptian groups. Discussion and implications of the findings for language education are highlighted.

Key words: adolescents, applied sociolinguistics, identity, self-efficacy, language education, EFL
