    Default sorry, Would you help me with title of the article?

    Hello

    I'm going to do a research on the effect of listening on improving grammatical accuracy as part of writing skill?

    Does the following has the same feeling as what I mean? Should I write it differently?

    The Impact of Listening to English tapes on the Improvement of Writing Skill.

    It's quite long though I can't think of a way to shorten it. The only thing I would change would be to use "Recordings" instead of "Tapes". "Tapes" is rather old-fashioned. I doubt many people use audio or video cassettes any more.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Thanks. You are right I haven't paid attention to that.

    Although I don't know what the results of you research are, how about "influence" instead of "impact"? I know that "impact" is more marketable, but "influence" might be more appropriate.

    PS: if the research proves there is actually an impact, please forget this post.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    There might be no improvement. I think what you're researching is the influence of listening on grammatical accuracy in writing. You might find that it improves it, or not.
    Your sentence reads something like: "The impact of listening on the impact on writing."
