Online Submission
It is well known that listening comprehension plays a very important role in foreign language teaching, especially with young learners (Anderson & Lynch, 1988; Brewster, 1994; Brown, 1986, 1989; Grabielatos, 1995; Phillips, 1993; Rost, 1990; Shorrocks, 1994). Listening is assuming a more and more important place in foreign language teaching and learning process. Yet the present situation is far from satisfactory. Students are still frustrated and helpless against listening (Yang, 2005). Many of the activities of our contemporary society are based on information (and possible operations) made available through the World Wide Web. Practical information, images, presentations, sale catalogues, booking and reservations, selling and buying are exchanged, purchased, activated through the web (or find their vehicle in the web). The purpose of this study is to investigate the use of websites for practicing listening skills of undergraduate students. To explore students' views towards using websites for practicing their listening skills in English II course at Suranaree University of Technology. Appended are: (1) Questionnaire; and (2) Interview.
