Listening to the speech of native speakers, or listening to an authentic listening text can be very difficult for L2 learners, and can cause comprehension problems. If the teacher does not put enough emphasise on a proper preparing of a listening comprehension task, children can be unable to complete it, and what is much worse, they can develop a negative attitude toward listening and in the long run, toward language learning as well. To avoid this, we have to make efforts to plan the pre-listening stage thoroughly by constructing relevant pre-listening activities and creating advantageous conditions in the language classroom. In my dissertation, I am dealing with the importance of pre-listening activities in the development of effective listening skills.
