Thereby, the concept of habit often forms the theoretical foundation, even if in a particular study labels such as reading activity, behavior or frequency are used.

Method The Study This is a descriptive study since it deals with the factors that affect the listening skill. Participants The study is conducted on fifth grade students from 4 private schools, three of which are in Ankara, and one of which is in øzmir.
