Abstract

This was an empirical research on the application of Task-Based Language Teaching to the teaching of English listening in Private Higher Vocational College. Listening is a basic and crucial part of the communication process and it is the foundation of other language skills. A number of people have frequently made the point that of the total time an individual is engaged in communication, approximately 45% is devoted to listening . However, the current listening instruction strategy is dominated by the paradigm of tape-playing, exercise-completing, and answer-checking. This does nothing more than test students' listening ability. Teachers should find an effective teaching method to improve students' listening ability.
