Types of listening

LISTENING PREOCESS

Listening is hearing and perceiving a


message. Listening is a mental function.

Listening process has three stages: hearing,


processing and evaluating.

The objectives of listening are related to the


level of knowledge , application and aptitude.

SUB-SKILLS

Sub-skills of listening are manifested in terms


of behaviour.

Sub-skills of listening may be classified into


two classes. They are listening for perception
and listening for understanding meaning.

Listening

for sound perception have the


following sub-skills:

1. distinguishing between the sounds of L1 and


L2.
2. understanding the tone, melody, rhythm, stress
and intonation of L2.
3. learning to speak a word before writing.
4. understanding the lack of concord between
pronunciation and spelling of words in English.

Listening for meaning have the following subskills:

1. predicting the speakers main theme and


guessing the word he would use next.
2. understanding the collection of
words(adjectives, adverbs etc).
3. grasping the mood and import of the speaker.
4. understanding how the speaker develops his
idea logically and sequentially.

Other sub-skills of listening are:

1. discriminating sounds in isolated word forms.


2. discriminating sounds in connected speech.
3. discriminating stress patterns within words.
4. recognizing stress variation in connected
speech.
5. recognizing the use of stress in connected
speech.

DEVELOPMENTAL ACTIVITIES

The teacher should give enough exposure to


the learner to grasp the sound system of L2.

with regard to English, the sound system


should be introduced much before the
graphics is introduced.

While introducing vocabulary, the teacher


should be a model in his pronunciation, stress,
intonation.

Speaking with gestures, eye contact and facial


expression will make learning more effective.

The teacher can give instructions to the


learners to do some physical movements.

Exercise on making objects can be given to


the learners.

Dictation- the positive feature of dictation is


that it involves the learner, who become
actively involved with language.
