Abstract : The neglect of listening comprehension in the audio-lingual approach to the teaching of foreign languages is pointed out. The need to develop listening comprehension, not only as a foundation for speaking, but as a skill in its own right, is stressed. The creation of new materials that are geared to the specific objectives and requirements of this skill, together with specific ways of adapting current materials to emphasize the audio in the audio-lingual approach are suggested.
