Abstract:An approach to the design of listening comprehension materials and classroom activities reflects a view of the nature of listening and the processes it involves. An understanding of the role of bottom up and top down processes in listening is central to any theory of listening comprehension, as well as recognition of the differences between the interactional and transactional dimensions of language use and how these affect listening. In this paper, these views of listening will first be elaborated and then applied to the design of instructional materials and activities for the teaching of listening comprehension.
