Abstract

Many language students face difficulties when listening to a second language. For English as a
Second Language (ESL) students, listening is not usually a significant part of their lessons.
Educators usually pay more attention to reading, writing and speaking skills, resulting in
listening anxiety among students. Additionally, listening activities are often carried out only to
test the students’ abilities, which may also lead to anxiety and apprehension (Vandergrift, 1999).
According to Young (1992), anxiety is one of the key elements for poor listening abilities.
Effective listening requires students to apply certain mental steps to address their listening
anxiety or challenges. Goh (2000) stated that teaching listening strategies to the students is very
helpful for developing students’ comprehension. In this study, 100 participants were selected to
examine the influence of metacognitive awareness strategies on their listening comprehension.
The study was conducted in two stages of Pre-test and Post-test for MCQ (listening
comprehension) and Metacognitive Awareness Listening Questionnaire (MALQ), adopted from
Vandergrift et al. (2006). In general, based on the MCQ scores, the findings showed an increase
in the percentage of correct answers. As such, the metacognitive strategy awareness has
positively influenced the test scores. Future studies are recommended to explore how
metacognitive strategies can impact the students’ listening performance
