    Abstract: 此研究旨在探索高、低英文程度學生的聽力使用策略,其方向有三:一、高程度組與低程度組各如何使用聽力策略;二、兩組之間在聽力策略使用上是否有相似性或差異性;三、學生們選擇使用某些聽力策略的背後因素為何。

    研究者根據淡江大學英文系大一新生模擬托福成績選了四位大一英文系女學生作為受測對象;其中兩位為高程度學生,另外兩位為低程度學生。主要研究工具為think-aloud protocol,配合聽力策略使用問卷,作為分析時的比對。每位受測者先填寫問卷後才進入think-aloud的步驟;其中有兩篇英文文章,受測者在聽完一次後,開始說出剛剛聽到什麼訊息以及如何聽懂該訊息、使用哪些策略;所有的過程都有錄音,並騰成文字敘述,作為分析時使用。

    This study aims to explore English listening strategy use between two pairs of high- and low-proficiency learners. Three areas are addressed: 1) listening strategies between the two pairs, 2) in what way are the two pairs different or similar in listening strategy choice, and 3) participants’ beliefs about choosing certain listening strategies over others.

    Participants were four female English majors enrolled in a freshmen listening course at Tamkang University. Two were high proficient; the other two were low proficient. The primary instruments include two lectures, interviews via think-aloud protocols, and listening strategy questionnaire. Participants first filled out the questionnaire before working on the think-aloud protocols. They listened to two recorded English lectures followed by reporting verbally what and how they had comprehended the lectures. All the verbal productions were tape-recorded and transcribed for qualitative analysis.

    Three listening strategy categories were used as the measure for analysis—top-down, bottom-up and metacognitive strategies. The results indicated that all four participants, despite their different language proficiency levels, demonstrated the use of top-down and metacognitive strategies. The less proficient pair, in particular, reported a greater reliance on translation and word-by-word decoding strategies. Moreover, the less proficient pair considered deficiency in vocabulary knowledge and limited exposure to natural speech two stumbling blocks to listening comprehension. Such findings highlight the importance of contextual clues, vocabulary knowledge and constant exposure to natural speech in consolidating students’listening abilities. Suggestions for future studies were also proposed.
