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 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 to16.27, 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.
