Mayra Angelica Silva Ortega | Odilia Ramirez Contreras
Abstract: This action research study was intended to improve the listening comprehension of eleventh graders from a private school in Cartagena. Six workshops integrating authentic materials and listening strategies were used along to measure the impact on their listening comprehension performance. In this qualitative research, a group of 35 female participants were observed and evaluated by means of a teacher journal, a peer- observation form, and a student self- evaluation survey; besides, the evaluation of the correct use of the listening strategies and learning of vocabulary and grammar structures in each lesson was carried out through rubrics. After analyzing the data collected it was determined that students improved their listening comprehension performance by the use of authentic materials and listening strategies and that they were also able to interact more in the class, also showing a good level of vocabulary, as they felt more confident with their language usage in the classroom.
