Vietnamese EFL Students’ Perception on Using Dictogloss in Listening and Note-taking Classes
Keywords:dictogloss, listening, note-taking
AbstractThis study investigates the use of dictogloss to improve listening and note-taking skills for Vietnamese EFL learners. The study was conducted in two Listening AE1 classes at International University, VNU-HCMC, with 47 students over a period of 15 weeks. The dictogloss method involved the teacher reading a short text out loud and the students working in groups to recreate the text from week 2 to week 14. The study aimed to explore the effectiveness of the dictogloss method through the students' perception and performance. The results showed that there was a significant improvement in the listening and note-taking performance of the students. Moreover, the majority of students found the dictogloss method to be effective in improving their listening skills as well as enhancing their engagement with peers and teachers. However, some students reported experiencing stress and anxiety when using this method. The study suggests that dictogloss can be further studied and employed in the teaching of listening and note-taking skills classes.
