This research aims to get acquainted with the effectiveness of the active learning strategy in improving the acoustic awareness skills and understanding what is heard by the basic stage students in Jordan by answering the two following questions: This research has been applied to a sample of 60 students from the basic third grade in Al-Ahnaf Ben Qais school in Amman, this school is purposefully selected because of the location being close to the researcher, and its administration and teachers cooperation with the researcher. Two branches were randomly selected, one experimental and the other is control, each branch consisted of 30 students. Referring to the theoretical literature and previous studies and the researcher experience, the researcher developed two tests to measure the acoustic awareness skills and understanding what heard skill is. It is clear from Table 1 that the mean of the experimental group individuals was up to 16.27 with standard deviation of 1.84, and for the control group, the mean was up to 12.23 with standard deviation of 2.58, to determine whether the difference between the means with statistically significance, t-test is performed for two independent samples, the results were presented in Table 2. It is clear from Table 2 that (t) statistical value was up to 4.04 which was significant at 0.05 level and less, and when reviewing the means, it became clear that the mean of the experimental group was up to 16.27, while the mean of the control group individuals was up to 12.23, this indicates that there is an effect on the experimental treatment in developing the level of understanding of what is heard.
