Using Interactive Approach to Teaching Listening Skills for Lower Secondary School Students
AbstractThe aim of this study focuses on investigating the effects of the interactive approach in teaching listening skills and attitudes of lower secondary students towards the use of the interactive approach in Vietnam. A total of 45 students of grade 7 participated in this action research project. Results of the study reveal that there is a significant difference in the pre-test and post-test mean scores of students in listening skills before and after being exposed to interactive approach in an experimental teaching of eight weeks. In addition, students have positive attitudes towards the use of interactive approach in their listening lessons. The study suggests that use of interactive approach yields positive results on students’ performance and engagement in listening lessons and therefore should be adopted in teaching to help improve EFL students' learning and mastery of English listening skills.
