Speech perception training as a serious game in the EFL classroom

Marlisa Hommel


Speech perception training improves listeners' perception, but it could also significantly improve production. The benefits of perception training are interesting for the English as a foreign language (EFL) classroom, where this tool is currently not being used. This study looks at students' perception and production performance on a pretest and, following perception training sessions, on a posttest and retention test. Results show that perception training improved students' perception and production in the classroom context.
