Effectiveness of Schema-based English Listening Teaching Mode in Secondary Vocational Schools (Published)

The paper discusses how a schema-based English listening teaching paradigm can help Secondary Vocational Schools (SVSs). SVS English instruction has prioritized grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension over hearing. A lack of teacher preparation and large classes with diverse English proficiency has hampered students’ English listening experience. To support integrated language learning curricular revisions, the paper emphasizes listening skills for efficient communication. A thorough literature review covers schema theory, schema classification, and listening comprehension. The schema-based teaching model applies pre-, while-, and post-listening stages based on schema theory and Underwood’s “three stages” hypothesis. Students’ involvement, comprehension, and participation enhance with this technique. Student involvement and comprehension improve with schema-based instruction in an SVS. The study offers pre-listening activities to activate schemas and develop new ones, while-listening tactics to scaffold comprehension, and post-listening activities to solidify learning. Phonetic awareness, prior knowledge, and listening skills remain issues for students. Continuous theoretical knowledge enrichment and new teaching practices are needed to improve students’ listening comprehension and language ability.
