A Review of the Soundness of a Study Based on the Understanding of a Good Research

Jing Song


Listening has played an increasingly important role in language learning and acquisition. The issue of the potential relationship between background knowledge and listening comprehension attracted more attentions among linguistics and language scholars over the past decade. The main focus of this paper is to concentrate on the soundness of an empirical study conducted by Sadighi and Zare in 2006, offering an in-depth analysis of this relationship mentioned above. To illustrate this, a brief summary of their research is given. The next session assesses the rationality of the study, presenting details of three areas which include subject selection, data collection and data analysis. Finally, a concluding conception of its beneficial and profound significance in conducting a further good study will be demonstrated.
