However, there is obstacles when someone is process information and instruction in listening activities, such as sound are not clearly to listen, there is wrong instruction, different understanding about information, and other. It can be caused by lower brain in extract instruction and also disable function of ear system. To solve this problem, teacher should to implement suitable method for student in listening, such as the sound should to play slowly and clearly.
