This article gives a critical review of some research in listening comprehension in a foreign language. Several important methodological failures are discussed: lack of systematic variation of the input, measurement after the relevant initial listening process and measurement by means of (re)production tasks. These failures lead to unsatisfactory data if one wants to discover the real problems foreign language learners have when listening to texts in a foreign language. Arguments are given which show that to some extent word recognition research can avoid the above-mentioned failures.
