Abstract
It is well-recognized that American English has been preferred in Korea and thus has been the target language among various regional dialects of English. The goal of this paper is to elucidate whether English learners are influenced on their listening comprehension by their exposure to a specific English accent used in the classroom. For the study, we investigated the listening scores of the two groups of students in the same department, one of which is taught by an American and the other by either a British or an Australian professor. Results indicated that exposure to American English in the class did not improve comprehension of the listening tests given in American English, and that exposure to either British English or Australian English did not severely impair listening comprehension, either. Such a result provided little or no support for the claim that Korean students have advantage or disadvantage depending on the type of English accents used in a classroom. Hence, even though American English is preferred and is more available in the society in general, Korean students might produce similar results in listening and understanding American English regardless of the English regional accent that they hear in the class.
