The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between the listening types of the Turkish pre-service teachers of Kafkas University and various variables (Gender, grade level, time in front of the screen, participating in activities). The sample was determined with simple random method and 193 Turkish pre-service teachers from Kafkas University participated in the study. The Listening Types Scale developed by Bodie, Worthington and Gearhart (2013) and adapted by Kaya (2014) into Turkish was used as data collection tool. The scale consists of four sub-dimensions and 18 items: relational listening, interactive listening, critical listening and analytic listening. As a result of the study, it was found that the listening types used by Turkish pre-service teachers did not show a significant difference according to gender, grade level and time spent in front of the screen. On the other hand, the difference between the types of listening used by teachers' candidates according to their participation in the activities inside or outside the university was found to be significant in favor of those who participated in the activities in relational listening. © 2020 JLLS and the Author - Published by JLLS.
