The experiment provided students with yes-no questions with either sentence-initial, medial, or final focus, and they were asked to choose the most appropriate answer to each question. The results showed that the Korean students` scores from the test were considerably low compared to those of native speakers. Among the three positions, the students found sentence-medial and final focus relatively easy to perceive than sentence-initial focus. Also, when the scores were compared to their scores from the Nationwide English Listening Comprehension Test, it was revealed that there is no correlation between their ability to perceive focus and their overall listening ability.
