Interactional Listening Tasks: A Comparative Study of Strategy and Practice Teaching Approaches.
Edinburgh Working Papers in Linguistics, n3 p78-91 1992
This paper discusses non-native speakers' use of interactional strategies to elicit responses from or negotiate meaning with their interlocutors in an attempt to solve their problems in conversational listening. It is concerned with the question of whether these interactional listening strategies can be taught as a means to improve learners' conversational ability rather than allowing them simply to develop as a result of practice. This paper is a preliminary report on a practical experiment designed to investigate the effect of strategy and practice teaching in communicative activities in order to find out the applicability and effectiveness of listening training in the second language classroom.
