In this BA dissertation I picture different ways of dealing with listening in the area of foreign languages in primary education. For this, I have done a literature review focusing on how this skill has been taught since the 18th century. Besides, I have commented on some authors who have contributed greatly to the development of this skill in EFL settings. In order to have a more realistic view of how listening is introduced in the classrooms of primary education, I conducted a research through direct observation in a primary school for a period of three weeks. The analysis of such data lead me to draw some relevant conclusions about the treatment of listening today.
