Abstract: : This study aimed at revealing listening difficulties perceived by Indonesian learners in English as a foreign language listening class. The data were collected from 6 EFL students who have studied at the English department program in a University in Indonesia. This research is qualitative research which used questionnaire, observation and semi-structured interview to gain the data. This research used a Second Language Listening Difficulties Questionnaire proposed by Anna Ching-Shyang Chang (2013) to complete the required data and the second questionnaire was Strategy Inventory for Language Learning version 7.0 for EFL learners adapted from Oxford (1990). The result of the research showed that EFL Indonesian learners face difficulties related to internal and external factors. Moreover, in tackling these difficulties, the students apply listening strategies which include both cognitive and metacognitive.
