Listening learning strategies and outcomes: Taking Japanese news as an example


Taiwanese universities offer students majoring in the Japanese language the opportunity to take news and media courses in their middle and high school years. This study examines how to improve students’ learning effectiveness within a limited time. Students taking the Media Language course were surveyed and interviewed to identify which listening strategies were most effective for developing their listening skills. The findings showed that good learners spent more time studying and had more effective learning strategies.
