Listen, Listen, Listen and Listen: Building a Comprehension Corpus and Making It Comprehensible
Mordaunt, Owen G.; Olson, Daniel W.
Educational Studies, v36 n3 p249-258 Jul 2010

One approach to developing listening comprehension skills is through exposure to massive amounts of naturally occurring spoken language input. But exposure to this input is not enough; learners also need to make the comprehension corpus meaningful to their learning experience.
