6 Before the interviews: a listening comprehension test involving test items derived from the KPG B2 level listening comprehension past papers. Test items: Test items: a) Multiple-choice (M/C) b) True/False/Not Stated (T/F/NS) c) Completion items

7  While taking the test:  note down their difficulties next to test items  notes used as stimuli on the day of the interviews  After the end of the test:  fill in a feedback questionnaire (of a closed type): a. rate test items and oral texts in terms of difficulty b. evaluate the effect of specific text and task variables on their performance  responses used to form the questions of each interview

8  Interviews carried out:  on a different day from the test  separately with each individual  in Greek  Each interview:  lasted minutes  was recorded
