Common Problems with Listening Tasks

Hello colleagues, As ESL teachers, we all design listening activities and then pay close attention to how well learners understand. In a recent blog, Clair Maas identified some common problems with different types of listening tasks, for example: gap fill, multiple choice, matching, and true/false. Do the problems Maas describes resonate for you?

What are some listening activities that you rely on in your teaching?
