In other words, the less motivated learners were to listen, the less well they listened. 18 Strategies for Second Language Listening The impact of anxiety and self-efficacy on listening proficiency was the focus of an interesting study conducted by Mills et al. (2006) in the context of French learning in an American university. In that study, anxiety was measured through the use of an 8-point scale in which students were asked to rate the truthfulness of a number of statements (for example ‘Listening to native French speakers make [sic] me feel uneasy and confused’, p.
474). All of these studies indicate that while lexical knowledge is important for good comprehension in listening, it is not the only factor, and the crucial issue seems to be how listeners overcome gaps in the vocabulary they know or recognise. In other words, how well learners use a range of strategies seems to be very important, so that developing learners’ listening strategy use seems to be a useful area to pursue. In addition, the relationship between vocabulary knowledge and listening proficiency is complicated by the fact that knowing a word in its written form is not the same as knowing or recognising it when it is spoken, particularly when it occurs in connected speech.
2011) we give the interesting example of a lower-intermediate learner of French who, without having had any explicit listening strategy instruction, seemed to have gained this sense of control independently, by developing greater self-management and a more explicit ‘metacognitive theory’. She claimed she had to: Kind of learn not to panic when I don’t understand something […] just have more patience with myself because I know that it means I will get there and that it is not impossible. , 2011: 449) It is worth noting however that this student was really the only one from a sample of 15 who seemed to have developed this degree of insight and control, suggesting that for most learners more specific guidance might be needed from a teacher.
