Abstract
Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) in listening comprehension courses has long been proved effective in enhancing EFL learner’s listening proficiency as it creates enough space for students to individualize their learning process. However, it is a need to provide students appropriate strategies to help them overcome various difficulties in their listening practice. This quasi-experimental research aims at investigating the influence of metacognitive strategies on EFL learner’s listening comprehension performance in CALL listening class. Forty-nine Vietnamese English major freshmen from two intact classes at Van Lang University, participated in the study. During the 10-week listening comprehension course, learners in the experimental group were instructed to use metacognitive strategies, while those in the control group received no strategy instruction. The collected data from the pre-test and post-test were analyzed by t-test using SPSS software. Students were also required to complete the Metacognitive Awareness Listening Questionnaire (MALQ), adopted from Vandergrift (2004). The findings suggested that metacognitive strategy instruction positively affects students’ listening comprehension competence.
