|Abstract:||Native speakers, when listening to lectures, sift through the information to choose what to listen to, make hypotheses about future discourse, synthesize preceding discourse, and add their own background knowledge. Nonnative speakers, too, need to be aware of their active role as listener. They also need to be aware of the fact that their foreign language and foreign culture background may lead them to make predictions and interpret information during an English lecture differently than native English speakers. This article will present relevant theories of discourse processing for native and non-native speakers of English and suggest exercises for non native speakers based on these theories geared towards awareness and improvement of hypothesis making during lectures.|
