      Abstract

      As a ‘Cinderella skill’, listening is probably the least popular course to teach and the most difficult skill to acquire. There is very limited amount of research on extensive listening despite the emergent need of having aural English exposure to EFL learners. The best way to learn listening is through listening, so the role of extensive listening (EL) is crucial to improve listening fluency. However, due to the less accessible listening process, learners are often unable to recognize the words. In light of this, Reading-While-Listening (RWL) can serve as a bridging activity leading to listening fluency. It provides both aural and visual input to help learners keep the listening problems away. This presentation discusses the benefits of RWL and ideas for RWL materials to develop learners’ listening skills in EFL contexts.
