Abstract: Creativity, as an important psychological trait, has not been sufficiently touched by professionals in language teaching to date. Thus the present paper aims at examining the relationship between creativity and foreign language achievement. To this end, a test of creativity was administered to a sample of 272 undergraduate language learning university students in Mashhad, a city in north-eastern Iran. Results from Pearson product-moment correlation showed a significant correlation between learners’ creativity and their foreign language achievement as measured by their university GPA. The results of One-way ANOVA also indicated that there are significant differences in the mean academic achievement scores among language learners. Finally, the implications of the results were discussed within a foreign language learning context.
