Abstract: In this article, firstly the definition of autonomy will be slightly touched on. Secondly, the categorisation of autonomy will be briefly made. Mainly and finally, what need to be taken into account in order to be able to design and create pedagogically and psychologically effective and useful pre-listening tasks in hypermedia environments for autonomous (intermediate) language learners will be accounted for. The design and development of the pre-listening tasks will be looked at from the points of view of: 1) autonomous language learners; 2) hypermedia environments; 3) findings in the field of foreign/second language learning (FLL/SLL) and computer assisted language learning (CALL). Concrete examples of the pre-listening tasks for autonomous (intermediate) language learners in hypermedia environments will be provided and the assumptions underlying them will be explained.

Keywords: pre-listening tasks; listening; design; hypermedia; multimedia; autonomous language learners; activities; pre-listening stage; autonomy definition; foreign language learning; second language learning; computer assisted language learning; CALL; computer assisted learning; CAL.
