Description
Previous studies have indicated that many students prefer listening to a live reading of English by a teacher, to listening to an audio-recording of a story. This study explores an additional facet of this topic, by probing whether students prefer listening in a group to listening to a recording in solitary.
This study explores the responses of a class of twenty one Engineering students participating in a Communicative English class. The majority of students preferred listening in a group, but a sizable minority preferred listening in solitude. The preferences for group work that the students specified highlight the benefits of collaboration with peers. The students' responses suggest that the practice of solitary listening to audio-recordings of English language stories may be usefully supplemented with listening as a member of a group.
