A Study of EFL Listening Comprehension Strategies.
Teng, Huei-Chun
A study investigated the English-as-a-Foreign-Language (EFL) listening comprehension strategies used by university students in Taiwan. The subjects, 51 freshmen at National Yunlin University of Science and Technology with a low-intermediate level of English language skills, were administered a test of listening comprehension (questions appended) and a questionnaire (appended) concerning their patterns of use of 52 listening comprehension strategies. Results indicate that among the six categories of listening strategies, those characterized by compensation techniques were most often used by the students. Among all 52 strategies, "paying attention" and "translating" were the individual strategies most commonly used. In addition, effective listeners used significantly more strategies than ineffective listeners did in five of the six categories. Suggestions for classroom instruction in listening are offered.
