Purpose of  Research Listening comprehension activities provide students with the aural component of the target language to help them better hear the intricate sounds, enunciations, and content and develop their abilities to communicate with others in a target language
Subject of Research English-speaking students enrolled in second semester beginning French at the University of Arkansas
Data Assesment The Research uses several ways :

1.    Demographic Questionnaire

2.    Interview

3.    Data Analysis

Method of Research The  Research Use two Methods:

1.    Quantitative Component

2.    Qualitative Method

Stage of  Result The Research is divided into several stages :

Preparing for Strategic Planning for Students’ Voice

Setting Up The Matter of  Pretest and Posttest for Observation on students’ comprehension of the aural passage and their acquisition of vocabulary

Determine The Steps and Scoring

Preparing the Materials which will be used for Research to Supporting Listening Comprehension and Vocabulary Acquisition with Multimedia Annotations

Result of Research The Analysis Result of  The Research Conducted is :

The students performed best when they had access to visual and verbal annotations, moderately well when they had access to visual or verbal annotations alone, and poorest when no annotations were available to them. In most instances, access to multiple annotations led to significantly higher results than the other annotations. Students’ voices, in addition to the quantitative results summarized above, ex­tend Mayer’s generative theory of multimedia learning to listening comprehension since selection from the material available and construction of referential connections between visual, verbal, and aural representations gave students more retrieval routes to the information to recall vocabulary words and to comprehend the passage.

Strength ofResearch 1.    The Theoretical Basis is Right

2.    Using many of  The Analysis  Methods

Weakness ofResearch There are several materials which can be enhanced, namely:

A.   Methodology

1.   Quantitative Component

Nothing treatment foundation for use it, it has to include references from books or articles about the use of treatment.

“(a) without access to annota­tions, (b) with only verbal annotations available, (c) with only visual annotations available, and (d) with both visual and verbal annotations available”

Detail about the pretest and post-test was not included, so it does not convince the reader that strategy was carried out or not.

2.   Quantitative

No attachments on what is being asked to students at the time in interview takes place.

Data analysis is little bit, it seems less convincing in research conducted.

Conclusion This research is still in need of repair, so it needs for criticism and suggestions.

The strategy used to be very helpful in this research.

In this journal can help the student to the face listening comprehension.

Purpose of  research To determine if the listeners identified in florentine’s study are typical of non-native listeners and if age of second-language acquisition influences speech perception  in noise. Native mexican-spanish-speakers who learned american-english before age 6 or after age 14 were compared with a group of native american-english speakers.
Subject of research 1.      The monolingual group (mon) consisted of 9 listeners who learned english from birth and ranged in age from 20 to 29 years old.

2.      The bilingual-since-infancy group (bsi) included 3 listeners who could not determine which language they learned first, they were between 21 and 35 years old

3.      The bilingual-since-toddler group (bst) included 9 listeners who learned english as a second language before the age of 6. They were between 22 and 37 years old and spoke english for an average of 24 years (range: 17–32 years).

4.      The bilingual-post-puberty (bpp) group consisted of 9 listeners who learned english after the age of 14. They were between 21 and 49 years old and spoke english for an average of 9.4 years (range: 3– 26 years).

all listeners were university students and reported using english for daily communication.

Data source The research uses several ways :

1.      Spin test

2.      Observations

3.      Data analysis

Method of research The  research use two methods:

1.      Quantitative component

2.      Qualitative method

Stage of  result The research is divided into several stages :

1.      Preparing for make a group to each listener

2.      Setting up the matter of  pretest and posttest for get the result on listener that learning a second language at an early age is important for the ability to understand it in noisy situations.

Result of research 1. Highly proficient non-native listeners who learned

English after puberty perform worse in noise than listeners

Who learned the language as infants or toddlers,

Although all listeners performed with native-like proficiency

(better than 96% correct) in the quiet.

2. The slopes of the psychometric functions for early

Bilinguals indicate that they can take better advantage

Of context than listeners who acquired their second language

After puberty.

3. Although early bilinguals demonstrate significantly

Better speech-discrimination-in-noise skills than listeners

Who learned the language after puberty, they may

Not function at the same level as monolinguals, who demonstrate

Higher ntls and steeper psychometric functions.

Although early second-language acquisition is advantageous

For listening in noise, interference from a first language

May reduce even an early-bilingual listener’s ability

To perceive second-language speech in noise.

Strength ofresearch Using many theories of second-language acquisition suggest that age of acquisition , which it is supporting this study.
Weakness ofresearch 1.      Quantitative component

Detail about the pretest and posttestwas not included, so it does not convince the reader that strategy was carried out or not.

2.      Using a few method, it make difficult for researcher to get the result of this research.

 

Conclusion 1.      This research is still in need of repair, so it needs for criticism and suggestions.

2.      This research is interesting to do in the next research for who want learn more about Age of second-language acquisition and perception of speech in noise.

Purpose of  Research The findings are consistent with prior qualitative studies, indicating that culture-based educational strategies positively impact student outcomes, particularly Native Hawaiian student outcomes. This research underscores the benefits of culturally responsive pedagogy and practice. The implications of this study are valuable for education practitioners, programs, and policymakers seeking ways to eliminate achievement gaps for indigenous and other students.
Subject of Research Hawaian- students enrolled in school around  hawaian at the Kamehameha school
Data Source The Research uses several ways :

1.    Demographic Questionnaire

2.    Interview

3.    Data Analysis

Method of Research The  Research Use two Methods:

1.    Quantitative Component

Stage of  Result The Research is divided into several stages :

1.    Language: use of heritage language in teaching

2.    Ohana and community involved

3.    Determine The Steps and Scoring

4.    Preparing the Materials which will be used for Research to support heritage of language inflict education

Result of Research The teacher data reveal three main findings. First, the data show evidence that CBE is being implemented to varying degrees in classrooms across the state. As expected, Hawaiian cul­ture- and language-based schools are quick to adopt CBE. However, results indicate strong CBE users teaching in mainstream settings as well. Second, CBE is not limited to Hawaiian teachers. Although Hawaiians subscribe to culture-based pedagogy more often, these ap­proaches also are embraced by non-Hawaiian teachers, especially those in school settings that prioritize cultural relevance in education. Third, across all school types, including culturally grounded schools, teachers report regular use of the strategies that are generally considered best practice in teaching and instruction. Rather than CBE being divergent from best prac­tices, the data suggest a “double win” for children in culture-based environments. Specifically, the data suggest that in culture-rich environments, teachers go above and beyond conven­tional best practice to achieve relevance and rigor, delivering highly relevant education via culture-based strategies in addition to the research-based body of teaching strategies known as best practices. In effect, principles such as contextualization and joint productive activity are most often achieved by teachers using culturally relevant strategies.
Strength ofResearch 1.    The Theoretical Basis is Right

Research purpose The purpose of this study is to reveal the general behaviours of students with poor listening skills or who do not listen to the lectures and to develop opinions and approaches to resolve the identified negative behaviours.
Research subject 53 different teachers and academicians from different levels of academic and branches from the city of Konya in Turkey during the 2013-2014 academic year.
Assessment of data This research using quisioner to submit the data
Research method This is a qualitative research. In the analysis of the data obtained from the research, content analysis technic was used. “Content analysis refers to a systematic, iterative technic in which a script is summarized in smaller  categories of its words via codes based on certain rules” (Büyüköztürk, 2012: 240).
Research step The participating teachers were asked the open-ended question “From which reactions do you detect students with poor listening skills or who do not listen to the lectures?” to obtain the opinions of them. These obtained data were analyzed using the content analysis technic. Certain codes were identified via the content analysis and these codes were aggregated via themes. These opinions were stated as codes as well (T.1: Teacher 1). During the analysis process, field experts were consulted to review whether the categories and teacher responses were stated correctly or not. The experts were asked whether the titles, sub-titles are suitable or not, and the agreed upon points were included in the analysis process, and the disputed points were excluded from said process. The field experts generally stated similar views and corrections were made in line with the suggestions from the experts.
Research result According to the teacher opinions, behaviours of the students with poor listening skills or who do not listen to the lectures are handled under three main titles which are body language movements, verbal behaviours and material usage. These mentioned behaviours are developed with the explanations that include sample teacher opinions.
Strength of the research 1.      Using simple language, so make it easy to understand.

2.      It has many subject.

Weakness of the research 1.      Only use one method.

2.      Simple explanation.

3.      There are some typo.

Summary In this research uses teacher’s opinions, so it means that the opinions are not totally true. Because of many students have many ways to get knowledge, sometimes teachers just guest.
