Listening, speaking, reading and writing are four basic skills that children need to master. Each of them has its own unique characteristics and learning methods. Listening is mainly by silent listening, watching videos, listening by tape and so on. What we need is to make sure that we can hear English pronunciation and speaking methods as clearly as possible in an effective time, and understand the thoughts and purposes of the speakers. In our daily teaching, we have met many children who can spell words and sentences, but only the improvement of listening is very slow, parents are anxious, and children are under great pressure. Why is it so difficult for us to improve our listening? Foreign teachers mainly boil it down to the following points:
1. Too little contact
Because students usually focus on reading and writing in school and have little listening training, they may mistake listening for unimportance, which often leads to the neglect of English listening. Take my own class for example, there will be students who say that sometimes they clearly listen to the right pronunciation, but write the wrong words. Some words are pronounced almost the same, but it is difficult for students to distinguish them. For example, who's and who, listen and lesson, wall and work, door and doll, etc.
二 . 家长重视度不够
2. Parents do not pay enough attention to it.
When parents coach their children to do English at home, they mostly focus on spelling vocabulary and reciting and reading texts. Neglected to let the child develop the habit of listening to the tape. Over time, children naturally focus their interest and attention on reading and writing, while ignoring the importance of listening. Lack of vocabulary accumulation
基础知识是影响听力理解的决定因素。如果这些基础知识不够扎实，训练再强化，效果也不会明显。换言之，词汇量的多寡是听力理解是否顺畅的重要因素。美国的语言学家D. A. Wilkins也说过：“没有词汇，语言沟通就没有意义，人们不能表达任何东西。”大部分小学生仍然缺乏应有的日常词汇和基本用语，对于一些词汇，如get、make、take等，只知道其中的某一含义。
Basic knowledge is the decisive factor affecting listening comprehension. If these basic knowledge is not solid enough and the training is strengthened, the effect will not be obvious. In other words, vocabulary size is an important factor in listening comprehension. American linguist D. A. Wilkins also said, "Without vocabulary, language communication is meaningless and people can't express anything." Most pupils still lack proper daily vocabulary and basic phrases. For some words, such as get, make, take, etc., they only know one of the meanings.
3. Develop bad habits while listening
Some students choose to close their eyes and concentrate on listening in order to pay attention to listening while doing listening exercises. Little did I know that this would be counterproductive. Others have a habit of focusing on listening to every word, rather than grabbing keywords. This will make us lose sight of each other. Once we miss a word, we will become more nervous and lead to a vicious circle.
