Abstract

       The current study investigates the performance of (60) Iraqi undergraduate EFL learners in listening comprehension skills based on two different types of listening materials, namely audiovisual and aural listening materials. The study also discusses how Iraqi EFL learners can vary in their perceptions of aural and audiovisual listening materials. Data were collected by using two sets of international listening tests as pre-tests and post-tests, namely Allan's Oxford (2004) Placement Test and Cambridge English Listening Test (2015). The results of the study indicate a variance in the performance of the participants who were taught listening by only using audiovisual listening materials from the participants who were taught listening skills by only using aural listening materials. The participants in this study were also found to vary in their perception of the two different types of listening materials. The study draws implications for the teaching of listening skills as well.
