It cannot be denied that the development of technology has made the great impact to teaching listening. Every language teacher has realized that teaching listening needs materials and media that cannot be separated from technology. Teaching listening needs audio materials of native speakers for learning activities inside the classroom or for students’ practices outside the classroom. Over the years English teachers have used tape recorder and cassettes in teaching listening, even though these media can be categorized as the simple media and technology. Later as technology developed, language laboratories are widely used for teaching listening. The audio materials are also improved into audio visual materials which are interesting. This technology is followed by the widely used of computers. It causes language laboratory completed with computer assisted language learning (CALL) which is more interesting that makes students not only listen to the audio but also watch and interact with materials. Nowadays it is believed that with personal computer where both teachers and students can access internet, listening materials and activities will be various and more interesting, because they can download video and other listening materials from you tube in addition they can also watch and listen to English news from International TV channels. Those are the reason why technology has the important role in teaching listening. It can ease and facilitate teachers and students in listening. Listening activities are not only done in the classroom but also at home where students can practice many kinds of listening activities in order to develop their experience and skills in listening.
