In the process of learning English, every student has been taught vocabulary at their earliest stage due to its priority. Most previous research found that extensive listening could help students enhance their vocabulary. However, most studies lack an evaluation of the student’s receptive vocabulary knowledge through listening to the target words. Therefore, the research aimed to examine to what extent extensive listening affected sixty non-English major students’ vocabulary learning in terms of receptive knowledge and their attitudes toward extensive listening practice. The participants were selected non-randomly as a control group and an experimental group. They took the Listening Vocabulary Levels Test (LVLT) as a pretest, then the experimental and control groups practiced extensive listening and intensive listening, respectively. After eight weeks, all participants were required to take a posttest (LVLT). Only the experimental group answered the survey to show their attitudes toward extensive listening practice. The results reveal that extensive listening helps to improve the students’ receptive vocabulary knowledge significantly, especially word meanings and word aural forms. Moreover, most students had positive attitudes toward extensive listening. Hence, it is strongly inspired for this research to suggest some implications and recommendations for further studies to help students enhance their vocabulary learning significantly.
