The Study of Chinese Listening Teaching Material for Academic Purposes
listening skills training
teaching material compilation
As the number of Chinese language learners continues to rapidly increase, the number of students studying abroad to Mandarin speaking continues to soar as well. The first challenge that these students encounter is learning by listening to lectures delivered in Chinese. Given the lack of listening skills training materials for Chinese for Academic Purposes, this thesis focuses on developing an ideal pattern for compiling listening skills training materials that meet the specific needs of foreign students studying for academic purposes in Taiwan. This study reviewed the literature on English for Academic Purposes, theories of second-language listening skills training for academic purposes, the structure and the linguistic features of academic lectures, and the method of compiling second-language teaching materials for academic purposes. Needs analysis was also conducted by analyzing 19 relevant listening skills training materials and by surveying 34 students in Taiwan or China. This study discovered that ideal listening skills training materials should obtain authentic and extensive materials that are applicable across academic subjects. Additionally, ideal training materials should introduce different types of lectures on a variety of topics and integrate different listening skills, note-taking skills, and other communicative skills. This study provides a course outline as well as a sample lesson. The outline includes 10 lessons divided into the following 3 units: “Gaining A Sense of the Lecture”, “Listening for and Recording the Key Points” and “Listening for the Details”. The author also invited relevant students and teachers to evaluate and comment on the sample material. Generally they approved of the sample material in that it meets both teaching goals and learning needs, while providing abundant and authentic listening materials, as well as practical and effective linguistic formats and exercises.
