The present study aimed at investigating the influence of two language learning strategies (predicting and summarizing) on Taiwanese EFL university students’ listening comprehension, motivational intensity, and desire to learn English. This quasi-experimental study adopted a pre-test-post-test control group design with fifty-four students from two English classes in NTOU. In the pre-test, ANCOVA was used to balance possible initial differences between the two classes based on their pre-tests of listening comprehension scores. During the research, the intervention group received six-week training of predicting and summarizing strategies while the comparison group used repeated way for practicing listening for six weeks. The quantitative data were gathered from the Feedback Questionnaire, pre-test and post-test of TOEIC listening comprehension scores, Motivational Intensity and Desire to Learn English Questionnaire, and analyzed with ANCOVA and paired samples t-test. The qualitative data collected from the interviews were used to interpret students’ motivation and desire toward learning English. Results of this study revealed that there were no significant differences between the two groups’ pre-test and post-test. However, the post-test scores of the intervention group were higher than the comparison group’s and the intervention group’s desire to learn English also showed a significant difference. Moreover, most of the participants in the intervention group gave the predicting and summarizing strategies positive feedback, and would like to use them to improve their listening comprehension in the future. As for the comparison group, the participants expressed they would like to learn more strategies for enhancing their comprehension. Finally, the study also explored the meaning of the research results, and offered suggestions for future research and instruction.
