  • Perception of Listening Comprehension Needs: Differences Among ESL Students, Their Friends, and Their Teachers

    Nobuo Tsuda

    MA thesis presented to the Department of Linguistics Brigham Young University     1987.08

    Single Work

    This study attempted to find out what kinds of listening activities ESL students perceive that they need and what kind of listening exercises they consider useful. In addition, this study attempted to determine what kind of listening activities native speakers (roommates/friends and teachers) think ESL students need and what kind of listening exercises these friends and teachers think are important to the learners. Finally, answers of the three groups were compared to determine if there were any significant differences in perceptions concerning the important needs and useful activities for ESL listening comprehension.
    Questionnaires were administered to ESL students, their friends/roommates, and their teachers. The results showed that ESL students' favorite listening activities were everyday conversations followed by entertainment programs on the radio and TV. In listening exercises students rated as most helpful minimal pairs at the word level, dictations at the sentence level and commercials/news on the passage/dialog level. There was no significant difference found between the teachers' and students' perceptions with regard to listening needs. However, the groups had different opinions about certain listening exercises. Friends/roommates perceived listening skills differently than the teachers did.
