"Teacher, the Tape Is Too Fast!" Extensive Listening in ELT
Renandya, Willy A.; Farrell, Thomas S. C.
ELT Journal, v65 n1 p52-59 Jan 2011
For many years, research effort has been devoted to understanding the nature of listening strategies and how listening strategies used by good listeners can be taught to so-called ineffective listeners. As a result of this line of research, strategy training activities have now become a standard feature of most modern listening coursebooks. However, in this article, we maintain that given the lack of evidence of success with this approach to teaching lower proficiency EFL learners and the fact that strategy training places a heavy burden on teachers, an extensive listening approach in the same vein as an extensive reading approach should be adopted.
