Abstract

This paper was written as part of the project “English in Croatia”
and deals with the place of English listening comprehension in total competence.
It is shown that in primary school girls are better at this component than boys,
whereas in secondary school the sex of pupils makes no difference in this respect.
The intensity of English - learning in primary school is related to achievement
in listening comprehension, but is not decisive. In secondary school sample no
correlation has been found between the intensity of learning and achievement
in this component of the test. Length of learning has also been found to be nonsignifi
cantly related with achievement in listening comprehension. City pupils turn
out to be more successful than pupils from small towns in this component of the
test. In her discussion of results the author puts special emphasis on the role of
exposure to English in out-of-school everyday life.
