Abstract :The aim of this paper is to examine the effectiveness of dictation in improving listening ability of Japanese high school students. Japanese learners’ listening ability is quite poor, as is found in the data of a recent TOEFL test. When Japanese learners of English find it more difficult to understand the spoken text than they do with the written one of the same content, one probable hurdle they cannot overcome is translation of the sounds into the corresponding linguistic forms. The paper focused on dictation because, to do dictation, the learner is first required to recognize the words and phrases in the sound chain before writing them down. In the experiment, dictation was given eight times as treatment to the participants in the experimental group. Their scores on the post-test improved significantly in comparison with the control group. It can be concluded from the experiment that dictation is effective in improving English listening ability of Japanese high school students.
