Abstract

With the development of research on listening comprehension process, it was gradually found that listening comprehension was an interactive process in which listeners’ background knowledge played an active and important role. Schema theory layed a theoretical foundation for this discovery. On the basis of previous theoretic researches, the writer conducts an experiment by teaching English listening based on schema theory. It aims to check whether the “three-stage teaching model” based on schema theory is effective in improving students' English listening comprehension or not. 60 freshmen from two classes with the similar achievements in English Listening test, who major in English in Peihua University are treated as subjects. The teaching lasts for six weeks. The "three-stage teaching model" is used in one of the classes as the experimental group and the other class is the control group taught by common used method (re-listening method called by the author in this thesis). After the experiment, it is concluded that the "three-stage listening model" based on the schema theory, can improve the achievements of students' English listening comprehension more effectively.
