The present study investigates the effectiveness of using songs in improving the listening comprehension skills of young learners in primary cycles. To address thisissue, an experimental research study was carried out. Atotal of 80 young learners of English as-a-foreign language (EFL) participated in the study. Data were collected through administering a structured interview with English language teachers, pre-tests and post-tests, and a questionnaire that assesses young learners` attitudes towards using songs. The results demonstrate that there are numerous factors that hinder the improvement of young learners` listening comprehension.However, the use of songs helped learners to develop their listening skill.The study concludes that most of the young learners enjoyed and appreciated learning English through listening to songs. Implications for teaching and further research are discussed.
