How to guarantee the teaching quality and students' interest in learning the skill in a large class; how to consciously improve students' autonomous learning, and the professional listening class teaching on webbased autonomous learning strategy give many inspirations.

It also explores the feasibility and effectiveness of a large-class in teaching listening based on web-based autonomous instruction.
