Towards Understanding Listening Comprehension in EFL Classroom: The Case of the Saudi Learners
Bano, Farah
English Language Teaching, v10 n6 p21-27 2017
The present study aimed at making a pedagogical exploration into listening comprehension skills and examining the problems faced by learners in the English as a Foreign Language (EFL) classroom situation at Jazan University, Jazan city, Saudi Arabia. To analyze the problems, two very important processes were considered; namely, top-down and bottom-up process. The top-down process worked well because of their previous knowledge of the context to make sense of what is being said in the class. However, the bottom-up also worked as well.
