    Abstract: 本研究主要經由台灣大學生對於使用podcasts作為英語聽力練習的態度及回應,進一步探討podcasts這種新興的學習工具是否適合運用於英語為第二語言的聽力訓練,以及podcasts能否成為英語為第二語言的聽力課程的補充教材。參與本研究的對象為60位就讀台灣淡江大學的大一生,他們來自於同個科系也同樣為英語為第二語言的學習者。而本研究中實行的podcast練習即為此班學生英語聽力課程的補充教材。每週學生必須利用課外時間收聽指定的podcasts,接著在課堂上針對每週的podcasts有不同型式的課堂活動或練習。本研究主要利用問卷調查法及訪談分析學生對於使用podcasts練習英聽的態度,此外,老師的課堂觀察和記錄用來進一步分析podcasts作為聽力課程補充教材的可能性。
    This study aims to investigate the use of podcasts in college freshmen’s listening practice. A podcast project was conducted with sixty college freshmen in an English Drill course for a period of 17 weeks for the purpose of assessing the feasibility of using podcasts as source materials for listening. Participants were assigned podcasts listening task on a weekly basis as part of the course requirements to improve listening comprehension. The task was reinforced in the classroom through exercises and learning sheets to monitor and facilitate learning. A questionnaire survey and oral interviews were conducted at the end of the project to collect data concerning the technical aspects of podcast use, learners’ reflections on this learning experience, and the efficacy of podcasts as a viable source material.
    The results found that the participants’ attitudes were positive towards podcast use and a majority had strong faith in the helpfulness of podcasts in listening practice. Advantageous features of podcasts were further proposed by the participants. From the instructor’s observations and reflections, podcasts were excellent source materials for listening practice when carefully planned. Problems and concerns were discussed for effective use of technology to enhance instruction.
    The findings highlight the potential of podcast as a useful learning tool for individual practice and a viable source material for classroom teachers. Further classroom implications and suggestions for research were also proposed.
