Abstract

This paper analyzes various listening activities characterized by repetition of the audio track between four and six times. The activities were implemented in classes of university students of Italian Language and literature at the Universidade Federal Fluminense (Niterói, Brazil). The study reports the comprehension percentage after successive listening attempts according to three sets of variables: text calibration, the degree of socialization post-exposure among the students, and the number of times the recording was played. Even considering the specificities of the context of the research (in particular, the typologically similar languages involved, Italian and Portuguese) and the small group of participants, the data suggest some guidelines for the use of repeated listening in the classroom.
