dc.description.abstract Listening comprehension is the primary channel of learning a language. This study tried to find out the difficulties/problems face both the teachers and the students in terms of listening skill in the classroom at Secondary level Education in Bangladesh. At secondary level education CLT (Communicative Language Teaching) approach is introduced and the students and teachers are asked to practice all four skills equally to develop their communicative skill. But only speaking, writing and reading skills are given maximum importance. The teachers are avoiding teaching listening skill to the students. The study focused on teachers and students problems in terms of teaching and learning listening skill in the classroom. Five research questions were developed to find out the problems. Sufficient data and information were collected from teachers’ and students’ opinions through questionnaire, FGD and class observation. Both the teachers and the students of Non Government Secondary high schools took part in this study. After collecting the data, it was analyzed and the findings came. The study discovered some reasons that were helpful to find out the answers of the problems. Based on the findings, conclusions and recommendations were made. en_US
