    What is the professional listening? Sound/Acoustic Professionals listening categorized into three phases. The ability to discriminate between different sounds. The ability to correlate the auditory difference with the physical properties of sounds. And the ability to imagine the proper sounds when given the acoustic properties of the sounds. The ability can be trained through listening training. Through trainings, trainees can share their auditory experience. The shared experience reinforces trainees to express their auditory impression with coherent words. And the use of coherent words supports smooth communication in their group. This word coherency is also the professional listening ability. In this paper, as a listening training, Technical Listening Training in Kyushu University was described. And we evaluated learning effects of training with average correct answer ratio among trainees. Trends of increasing correct answer ratio with training times were observed. We could show the effects of Technical Listening Training.
