The Reaction of Learners to Tape-Based Listening Comprehension Materials in French, Spanish and Italian "Community Classes."
Parkinson, Brian; And Others
Edinburgh Working Papers in Linguistics, n2 p14-23 1991
This paper describes learner response, as indicated by questionnaires, to a package of tape-based listening materials in French, Spanish and Italian. The learners were in "community classes" (2 hours per week) at a wide variety of levels. Their response was, in general, cautiously favorable, and indicates the general acceptability of such materials, but also the need for supplementation with study packs for home use. The concept of listening strategies was widely understood by the learners, although the strategies consciously used were of limited range. (Author)
