AbstractListening is a fundamental skill acquired by any language learner. Nevertheless, listening skills are not explicitly taught in school; reading and writing take the informal lead education, and listening skills take a back seat. Learner motivation plays a significant role in comprehending audio data, such as lectures, speech, interviews, telephonic conversations, etc. This paper discusses how listening skills are given the least importance in the current education system. Listening skills are most often taken for granted and considered to be acquired quite naturally. Therefore, the paper will highlight the difference between active and passive listening and the strategies employed to enable learners to enhance the skill to improve other language skills, especially speaking skills. The paper will also discuss the factors that impede active listening and listening comprehension. To conclude, the paper sheds light on using various active learning strategies in conjunction with technology to kindle motivation among the learners and improve their listening and speaking skills.
