Teaching Selective Listening at University Level

Maia Takidze


Despite of the fact that English is widely spread language all over the world and many people master the language successfully, we see the setbacks which students at Batumi Shota Rustaveli State University suffer while doing the listening component at the exam. Many studies have been conducted by scholars to improve listening competences among the language learners. However, listening stays the most difficult skill for many learners. Among different types of listening I decided to focus on Selective listening (listening for specific information), a core skill that determines students’ assessment and therefore their motivation. The study investigates the improvement of the selective listening skills among the students with focus of prosodic features of the language.

Keywords: listening skills, methodology, English language teaching, selective listening, global listening.
