This paper aims to support the cultivation of proper cognitive skills for academic English listening. First of all, this paper identified several listening strategies proved to be effective for cultivating listening skills through past research and builds up the respective strategy models, based on which we designed and developed various functional units as strategy objects, and the mashup environment where these function units can be assembled to serve as a personal learning environment. We also attached listening strategies and tactics to each object, in order to make learners aware of the related strategies and tactics applied during learning. Both short-term and mid-term case studies were carried out, and the data collected showed several positive results and some interesting indications.
