Empirical Research on the Interventional Training of English Listening Strategies
Abstract: Enhancing learners’ English listening proficiency has gained increasing attention from English teachers and academics. The present study aimed to explore the effective means of improving students’ English listening performances in terms of listening strategies. The empirical research was a one-year interventional longitude study on 123 postgraduates from NorthwestA&FUniversityand adopted a con- trolled study to testify the effect of listening strategies on the participants’ listening performances. The ex- perimental classes were instructed with listening strategies based instruction. Experimental class 1 was in- structed with metacognitive, cognitive and social/affective strategies; experimental class 2 was instructed with cognitive and social/affective strategies; the control class was instructed with the traditional listening method of teacher playing tape + students’ listening. The study found that the instruction of the overall three strategies proved to be the most effective in enhancing students’ listening performances. The implications and suggestions to the follow-up research were proposed finally.
