The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of metacognitive listening strategy training on the listening performance of a group of beginner preparatory school students at a university in Turkey. Two beginner groups, a control group (n: 20) and an experimental group (n: 20), were chosen as the participants of the study. The experimental group received five weeks of metacognitive strategy training embedded into a listening course book, while the other group did not. At the end of the training, a listening test taken from the teacher's manual of the same course book was administered to both groups. The analysis of the test scores using t-test revealed that the experimental group did statistically better in the test. The implication of the study is that metacognitive strategy training should be incorporated into the regular listening teaching program to help students become more effective listeners.
