Research has shown that a remarkable percentage of reality listening activities are interactive. Except for media listening, speech listening, eavesdropping, and listening activities are all geared towards two-way listening and speaking in face-to-face conversations.
Suppose the listening activities involve the listener in communication settings in which the listener and the speaker can interact to achieve fruitful understanding. In that case, they shall have a constructive effect on the process of learning and teaching in class. However, in language teaching, listening activities traditionally brought to an inactive recognition of the skills of listening, which lead learners to view listening as an activity of pure reception in that the listener just perceives and takes notes instead of being active in trying to synthesize the received information, attempting to find illuminations when the process of decoding-constructing encounters obstacles.
For those reasons, we research applying the interactive approach to teaching Vietnamese listening to foreign students. We examine research on teaching interactive listening in the world and Vietnam and investigate test sets for assessing language listening competency. Then, we clarify the concepts of interactive listening and their constituent elements. After that, we propose teaching techniques for Vietnamese interactive listening. Meanwhile, we propose a set of criteria to assess the interactive listening skills for use in the teaching-learning process and testing-assessing activities. The results obtained have the potential to serve as a basis for developing interactive Vietnamese listening coursebooks for foreigners as well as standards for assessing tests of Vietnamese interactive listening ability.
