Developing Listening Skills by Using Listening Logs
Iva Kladošek, 2016, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: For some students developing listening skills can be very challenging. This diploma paper deals with the importance of teaching and developing listening skills effectively in a foreign language classroom. In most cases when students listen to a text in a foreign language, they rarely think about how they listen and what can they do to improve their listening skills. For this reason, Listening Logs are presented in this thesis as a tool for developing listening skills. The thesis is divided into two parts. The first part is theoretical and the second one is empirical. In the theoretical part listening process is described as well as the process of planning listening activities in the classroom. In addition, uncertainties and problems causing learners demotivation to listen are discussed. Finally, Listening Logs are presented as a tool to encourage students to listen outside the classroom. In the empirical part, the results of how students reflect on their listening are presented. This is followed by an interpretation of Listening Log forms which were completed by the students. The results show that Listening Logs are a useful tool for developing listening skills and that students' grade in English does not affect on the opinion that Listening Logs are an effective activity for developing listening skill. This was investigated by forming five hypotheses, two of which were rejected and three were confirmed. The results also show that Listening Logs develop learner's autonomy.
Keywords: developing listening skills, planning, pre-listening stage, while-listening stage, post listening stage, Listening Logs.
