The topic of my M.A thesis is : " the effect of internet-based listening tasks on listening comprehension of Iranian EFL learners

In our modern world the internet is known as a superhighway information source. Interest in the internet technologies for communication and education has recently increased greatly all over the world. Soon the online language teaching and learning will be replaced with the traditional means of education. In this study, we wanted to investigate the effect of internet-based listening tasks on listening comprehension of Iranian EFL high school students of khoy city in West Azarbayjan. So, we studied the already done works and then we tested it on our students. The method which is used in this study was experimental. At the beginning of our research we administered pre-test in each group to recognize their background knowledge of listening comprehension. Experimental group received their input through internet and control groups’ listening source was tape-recorder. At the end, post-test administered for both of the groups and the Analysis of Variances was used for data analysis. By referring to scholars’ views and interpretation of our findings, it indicated that internet-based tasks can be used as a main source of developing language skills. Finally, we come to conclusion that the students who used internet-based listening tasks were more active and successful than the traditional group.
