Hacettepe University Journal of Education, v27 p223-231 2004
This study aimed at investigating beginner level English language learners' perspectives on the listening skill with regard to several dimensions, and to find out the extent to which the learners who have been trained in listening strategies actually use them while listening. The study took place at the English Preparatory School of an English medium university. Forty-one learners participated in this study. The study was based on qualitative data that were collected through two means: a survey questionnaire and think-aloud protocols. The findings indicate that a few students in this study considered themselves good at listening. Not so many students knew about listening strategies and they thought that a training might help them be more successful in English. The results of the think aloud protocols suggest that if students are given training in listening strategies, they will make use of these strategies while listening to texts. (Contains 9 tables.)
