With the purpose of increasing the understanding of listening comprehension and of improving the teaching of listening, this paper first examines three important theoretical aspects of listening comprehen-sion, namely, the nature of listening comprehension, the process of listening comprehension and the factors that affect listening comprehension. It then presents a discussion of how listening should be taught to Chinese college English majors. Five suggestions are made: ① pay attention to the stages of listening teaching. ② Give emphasis to developing micro-skills of listening. ③ Attach importance to developing students' listening strate-gies.④ Teach listening integratively with other language skills. ⑤ Make good use of modern audio-visual media and other learning facilities.
