|Title in Arabic||فاعلية برنامج مقترح على تحسين مهارات الفهم الاستماعي لدى طلاب الصف الثامن واتجاهاتهم نحو الاستماع|
The study aimed at investigating the effectiveness of a multimedia based program on developing eighth graders' listening comprehension skills and attitudes towards listening. The listening comprehension skills under investigation were 1) recognizing the topic, 2) finding the main idea, 3) identifying the speaker, 4) guessing the meaning and opposites and 5) finding supporting details. To achieve the aims of this study, the researcher selected (60) eighth graders from Jabalia prep "B" Boys school. The participants were divided into two equivalent groups: each group had (30) students. The researcher used three tools in this study1) a questionnaire for teachers to determine the most important listening comprehension skills for eighth graders, 2) an achievement test (Pre & Post), 3) an attitude scale (pre & post) to determine the students' attitudes towards listening. The results of the study indicated that the multimedia program was effective in developing the listening comprehension skills for eighth graders. In addition, the study findings revealed that there were statistically significant differences between both groups in the results of achievement test, in favor of the experimental one due to the program used. In the light of these results, the researcher recommends the necessity of implementing multimedia program in teaching English listening comprehension skills. Moreover, teachers of English should adopt technology in teaching English.
