How Can You Develop Listening Skills in Students?
Regardless of which strategies you use to develop listening skills, the goal is for students to demonstrate active listening.
If you’re wanting to improve students’ listening skills, you need to provide them with lots of opportunities to listen with a purpose.
This can be achieved through:
- listening to and following instructions
- playing listening games, e.g., ‘Telephone’
- playing drawing games that involve listening to instructions and then drawing appropriately
- listening to short stories and being prepared to answer questions relating to them.
Our True or False Listening Activity helps direct students’ listening through its use of a visual stimulus. Each image in the PowerPoint of this resource has a matching story for students to listen to. Students listen to the description read by the teacher while viewing the image and decide whether the information is accurate or not. Vocabulary may be adjusted to suit the language level of the students.
There are two versions of the scripts. One includes thumbnails of the images and the other does not.
