Materials Selection in Strategy Instruction for Russian Listening Comprehension.
Rubin, Joan; Thompson, Irene
This paper discusses findings from an ongoing 3-year study of the impact of strategy training on Russian listening comprehension. In particular, the study focused on the techniques that encourage increased student control of their application of learner strategies. The research presented adds to prior research on listening training in second languages in three ways: (1) by focusing on training for bottom-up as well as top-down strategies for listening comprehension; (2) by focusing on training students to use different kinds of text genres in determining listening strategies; and (3) by comparing the impact of cognitive and metacognitive training in listening strategies against mere exposure to video on listening proficiency.
