This book takes an investigative look into the differences between strategies used by students studying in China and Chinese students studying in the United Kingdom when taking the IELTS Listening test. It probes into whether and how studying in the United Kingdom might influence listening skills, and compares the strategies used by students who have taken an IELTS preparation course versus those who have not. This book provides a multidimensional view of listening strategies for ESL/ EFL teachers and students; and has implications for teachers who train students to apply multiple listening strategies.
