The purpose of this study was to utilize Web Quests for facilitating students' listening achievement and collaborative work in a musical listening class in Taiwan. A mixed-methods study using both quantitative and qualitative approaches were be adopted. First of all, one-group posttest-only design was be developed in this study for understanding if the approach of Web Quests could assist students' listening abilities or not. Besides, to understand their learning satisfaction and hidden effective factors, in this study, 5 points Likert scale questionnaire was conducted in the class. Finally, follow-up semi-structured interviews with the selected 8 students and instructor were collected after the experiment. Our findings suggest that there was no progress between the pretest and posttest (t=2.726, p=0.007); however, through interviews, questionnaire and observations, researcher could concluded some suggestions from the experimental group below: (1) learning content: most students have highly positive attitude in this class, and this strategy has beneficial effect learning.(2) Group collaboration: students did not get used to discuss with other group mates, because they had little opportunities doing team work.
