Out of the four skills of English, it would seem rather convincing to state that listening is the one that foreign students practise least. The why and wherefore is that most EFL instructors tend to pay more attention to linguistic competence, an approach which is reflected in the use of grammar-based materials. In addition, being trapped in the traditional approach of teaching English, instructors are more likely to concentrate on reading and writing rather than speaking and listening. Lastly, when students leave the classroom, there are few opportunities to listen to English. However, there is a cunningly lighthearted solution. Here, the use of song in teaching listening skills can be of great help.
