Abstract
Previous research shows that metacognitve strategy training helps to improve Chinese undergraduates’ listening in EFL (English as foreign language). The objective of this research is to find whether metacognitve strategy helps to improve Chinese graduate students’ listening in EFL. Two groups of graduate students, a controlled group (n: 66) and an experimental group (n: 84), at an institute in China were chosen as participants for the research. The whole metacognitive strategy training lasted for 40 teaching hours, with 45-50 minutes for each teaching hour. The students in the experiment group had metacognitive strategy training for about 20 minutes in every two teaching hours in the first 20 teaching hours and were reminded of using metacognitive strategies in the next 20 teaching hours while the controlled group did not have any metacognitve strategy training. The statistical analysis of scores in listening tests and a metacognitive awareness listening questionnaire before and after the experiment shows that the metacognitve strategy training has enhanced the Chinese graduates’ listening performance and it has also helped the middle-level and low-level students of them to improve their metacognitive awareness and metacognitive strategy application.
