U.S. Constitution Foreign Language Teaching Methods: Listening Hello! My name is Mahmoud Al-Batal and I am an Associate professor of Arabic in the Department of Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Texas, Austin. One of the areas in which I've been interested as a language teacher is listening, and I am happy to be here with you today to engage you in a discussion on listening. As learners of languages, you all realize how important listening is for communication, especially in this modern age of technology in which tremendous amounts of language input come to us through listening. Yet, despite this importance, the listening skill has not received the attention it deserves for a variety of reasons which we will discuss later in this module. While students in many language programs listen to audio recordings of the dialogues included in their textbooks, listening-only activities continue to be absent from many programs and little is done to provide systematic training in developing effective listening strategies.
