Abstract

This study aimed to develop students’ English listening comprehension using the Preparation-Familiarization-Assessment Process as referred to the PFA Process and to study factors affecting listening fluency achievement. The subject of this research included 34 freshman students majoring in Business Management at Thepsatri Rajabhat University, Thailand. The research was carried out as a one group experimental study in the second semester of academic year 2018. The instruments for the study involved the PFA Process, pre-posttest and semi-structured interview. The data were analyzed by mean, standard deviation, t-test and document analysis. The factors affecting students’ listening fluency achievement were collected by semi-structured interview. The results indicated that the students’ listening comprehension was significantly improved at .01 level. For the factors affecting students’ listening fluency achievement, it was found that repetition, background knowledge and vocabulary awareness were effective aspects to support their success in listening tasks.
