The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of listening comprehension methods on the listening comprehension of ESL students at the graduate level at KFUEIT (Khawaja Fareed University of Engineering and Information Technology, Rahimyar Khan). The population for this study was drawn from the KFUEIT BS English program. Two groups of twenty ESL learners each were formed. The groups were designated as control and experimental. The control group received standard instruction without using techniques, while the experimental group received instruction employing listening comprehension strategies. This research lasted ten weeks. A pretest was administered prior to the study's execution, and a post-test was administered following the study's conclusion to both groups. Post-test results revealed that the experimental group performed much better than the control group. This indicates that the adoption of reading comprehension methods has a beneficial effect on EL students. Research objectives were achieved as well in this research.
