Listening The final aspect of the communication process that we wish to discuss is listening. Meanings are intimately tied to listening ability. Students who are distracted do not focus on main ideas and have difficulty following instructional messages. Wolvin and Coakley (1993) provided a useful typology of listening consisting of five major functions. According to Wolvin and Coakley, discriminative listening is distinguishing among auditory and visual stimuli. This type of listening undergirds all other forms of listening.

Researchers differentiate between two types of interest. Individual interest is a stable internal disposition that develops over time in relation to a particular topic or subject area. A student, therefore, may develop an interest in history that lasts throughout his or her educational experience. Situational interest, on the other hand is generated by certain features of the environment that draw attention and focus to a particular area. The interest fostered in this context, may or may not last.

One of the variables accounting for this difference was pronunciation, which is influenced by accent. Gill (1994) investigated the effects of accent on comprehension. The results indicated that listeners had more favorable responses to teachers with standard North American accents than to those with British or Malaysian accents. Further, the students were able to comprehend more information from North American teachers than from foreign teachers. Communication in the Classroom 21 Student attitudes may influence how they perceive a teacher who has an accent.
