English listening abilities of 1st graders whereas before learning the lessons, gif.latex?\bar{X} = 2.32, S.D. = 1.01; after learning the lessons, gif.latex?\bar{X} = 7.85, S.D. = 1.42; and improvement score gif.latex?\bar{X} = 5.53, S.D. = 1.44, after learning the lessons, English listening score was higher than before at .05 level.
     2. English speaking abilities before learning the lessons, gif.latex?\bar{X} = 7.53, S.D. = 2.02; after learning the lessons, gif.latex?\bar{X} = 21.94, S.D. = 2.62; and improvement score gif.latex?\bar{X} = 14.41, S.D. = 3.36 after learning the lessons, English speaking score was higher than before at .05 level.
