CHAPTER 1
THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

I. Introduction

The word "noise" is derived from the Latin word "nausea" meaning seasickness. Noise can be defined as an unwanted or undesired sound.
Decibel is the standard unit for measurement of sound. Usually 80 db is the level at which sound becomes physically painful.

With overly populated schools and the increase of average classroom sizes, many students suffer from noise pollutants that can be found inside and nearby from their schools. Larger classrooms inherently breed more noisy atmospheres, and the issue of noise pollution can negatively impact a student’s academic experience. However, classroom size is not the only factor that contributes to noise pollution

Noise pollution is a disturbance to the human environment that is escalating at such a high rate that it will become a major threat to the quality of human lives. Noises in all areas, especially in urban areas, have been increasing rapidly. And the outcome varies on how we act on this kind of situation. Even animals were affected in this kind of problems, certain reports and findings had been gathered. Human-induced noise pollution is one of many factors contributing to the depletion of wildlife populations. Laboratory studies and limited field research have uncovered these problems and the results keep us blinded. Some animals that are adversely affected with problem behavioral effects, which vary greatly between species and noise characteristics, resulting in, for example, abandonment of territory and lost reproduction. But human clamor doesn’t just affect animals. Because many animals also pollinate plants or eat or disperse their seed, , certain studies were conducted and researcher found out that because plants cannot move they just rely on birds and other animals, those animals that were affected by noise pollutants derive the effect to plants and these results to plants to pollinate slowly or even die.

V. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY The following objectives were formulated by the researchers: 1. To inform learners & readers the importance of listening skills in the school. Also, to
