This investigation intended to find out the relationship between EFL learners' stress and their reading comprehension. The subjects who included ninety EFL juniors from Shiraz Azad University were asked to answer a standardized reading comprehension test and a stress questionnaire. After finding out the results of stress questionnaire, 10% of the whole participants who had stress were chosen to be interviewed. The collected data were analyzed through Multiple Regression and One-Way ANOVA, using SPSS software. The results showed a negative and significant relationship between learners' stress and their reading comprehension. And also, the relationship between learners' stress and their reading comprehension was predictable. Furthermore, the results revealed that there is a significant difference between the three groups of high, moderate, and poor test-takers in their rate of stress. (Contains 5 tables and 2 figures.)
