Paper Introduction :Styles determine how people perceive listening and awareness of their strengths and weaknesses (Pearce, Johnson, and Barker, 2003). Styles of listening could be addressed and examined, and, as a consequence, people would understand the need for improvement, using suitable listening styles depending on the circumstances (Brown, 1995).

Abstract Supporting Attachment:
This research will analyze the results of a research on listening styles in second language learners. Listening styles are essential for second language students and they are necessary to identify a person's usual or preferred listening behavior. One way to help students enhance listening in a foreign language may be to identify styles they use when listening and then helping them to improve those listening components that need support.
