ABSTRACT
This paper reports on the interrelationship between learners’ listening strategy use across listening ability, and learning style. A sample of 101 Taiwanese university EFL (English as a Foreign Language) students was surveyed with two structured penciland-paper questionnaires of listening strategy use (O’Malley et al. 1985; Vandergrift 1997) and learning style (Willing 1988; Nunan 1996). First, with the one-way between groups analysis of variance (ANOVA), the results suggested that there was a statistically significant difference between the strategy use and the attainment levels at the p< .05 level. Second, the findings also suggested that listening strategy use was significantly associated with learning styles (Sig. p< .05). Finally, the aim of this article was to throw some light on a little-investigated area, namely, listening comprehension strategies and learning style in L2.
