An Investigation into the Listening Strategies of ESL College Students.
Murphy, John Merton
A study of the listening strategies of college students for whom English is a second language analyzed their oral and written responses to listening selections. The analysis resulted in 17 individual strategies classified in six broad categories. More and less proficient listeners were distinguishable by the frequency of the strategies they used and the sequential patterns of strategies they followed. These results suggest that listening is an interpretive language process in which a variety of strategies are interwoven and that textual and non-textual information combined with the strategies used determines the listener's interpretation of what he hears. One implication of the study for the classroom is that methods of listening instruction should be integrated with activities involving reading, speaking, and writing. (Author/MSE)
