Though several studies have been made in the last few decades concerning listening in a second language teaching and learning around the world, only few were done in a systematic approach. Since the communicative language teaching and learning approaches are still prevailing in Bangladesh, the present study tries to find out the appropriately applicable approaches and tactics for teaching and learning ‘listening’ in a second/foreign language in Bangladesh. The necessity of effective tactics for teaching ‘listening’ is getting more and more focused. There is no single method that is the best for ELT in our context. In this regard, the only elucidation of a tactical pedagogic approach can be an alternative to the existing methods for learning this fundamental skill. The article shows that teaching and learning of ‘listening’ in Bangladesh by using different tactics can escort the succession of ELT in Bangladesh and make the learners as effective listeners subsequently.
