Listeners use metacognitive, cognitive and socio-affective strategies to facilitate comprehension and to make their learning more effective. Metacognitive strategies are important because they oversee, regulate or direct the language learning process. Cognitive strategies manipulate the material to be learned or apply a specific technique to a listening task. Socio-affective strategies describe the techniques listeners use to collaborate with others, to verify understanding or to lower anxiety. Research shows that skilled listeners use more metacognitive strategies than their less-skilled counterparts [3;5].When listeners know how to analyze the requirements of a listening task; activate the appropriate listening processes required; make appropriate predictions; monitor their comprehension; and evaluate the success of their approach, they are using metacognitive knowledge for successful listening comprehension. This is critical to the development of self-regulated learning.
