Everyweek, one group of students was assigned to listen to two videos of CNN 10 news, transcribe the videos, check the meaning of the vocabulary and write a short summary for each video, while the other wasn’t. Thanks to the teacher’s observation during the semester and the results of the comprehension listening test in the end, it was apparent that the students with more exposure to CNN news got better improvement compared to their counterparts. Students’ feedback through questionnaires and interviews after the final test also showed their appreciation to listening to the news.
