The Listening Preferences of British College Students: Implications for Learning and Teaching
Most research on listening patterns/preferences on college students has been done in the U.S. Only a handful of studies have been done in Europe and none in Britain. U.S. studies of listening behaviors have shown reliable patterns and relationships to learning. In addition, links to instructional effectiveness have been suggested. This study attempts to identify listening patterns in British college students to determine whether they align more closely with European patterns or American patterns. Implications for learning and instructional effects are discussed as related to the results.
