Abstract: The study aimed to find gender differences in verbal participation in discussion groups in Freshman English classes at Addis Ababa University. It also aimed to find differences in assertiveness between male and female students and correlations between assertiveness and verbal participation. Statistical analysis of interactional turns in the videotapes of discussions of majority-female, majority-male and halfmale-half female groups showed no gender differences. Similarly no significant statistical differences between male assertiveness and female assertiveness were found. Also correlations between assertiveness and verbal activity were found to be generally weak.
