Abstract
Listening is the main link in the process of learning conversational speech. This article is devoted to the implementation of modern teaching methods for understanding English speech using e-learning resources. There are many diverse listening instructional techniques. The main goal of this article is to provide an alternative approach to solving the issue of teaching a foreign language, namely, to teach students to understand English speech using the e-learning resources. This article discusses a new listening skills development system. The essence of this technique is not to go from simple to complex, as most methodologists suggest, but on the contrary, from complex to simple. This technique will allow students to practice their speech perception skills in such a way that after a certain time they will feel more confident when performing this type of work. To test this technique, two groups of students were selected:Group 1. A regular group that carried out the task after listening to the text at the usual fast pace.Group 2. An experimental group that carried out the task after passing 4 stages of this lesson.The article presents comparative results of the assignment of two groups of students. The results of this study are presented in summary tables, where you can compare which group carried out the task better - regular or experimental. The tables also show the percentages of each student and each group as a whole. The results are that the proposed method increases speech perception by 23 percent.
