Abstract [en]

Movies are an occurring feature in EFL classrooms in Sweden, as well as exercises seeking to

practice listening comprehension, although, there are few studies which combine the two

together. The aim for this literature review was to analyse the use of film for listening

comprehension development in EFL classrooms. The results show that movies can help

students reach higher levels of listening because students felt more motivated and they became

more active. The results also show further that teachers can help students reach higher levels of

listening comprehension by using various features such as pauses, activities before, during and

after the movie etc. The results also show that listening comprehension is a somewhat “take

n

for granted skill” which needs to be researched more about, specifically the importance of

listening comprehension in the context of the other skills.
