This research aimed to compare the Chinese listening achievements of first-year students before and after the application of Krashen's input hypothesis in classroom learning and to explore the attitudes of the students towards the Chinese Listening and Speaking Course after the application of the input hypothesis. The total sample was 25 students with the purposive sampling technique. The students were business Chinese students at the Faculty of Arts, Dhurakij Pundit University, enrolling in the first semester of the 2022 academic year. The research instruments consisted of a Chinese language proficiency test and an attitude survey conducted before and after the application of the input hypothesis. Statistical methods used to analyze data included percentages, averages, standard deviations, and the paired sample t-test.

The results showed significant improvement in the students’ listening achievements in all five aspects with statistical significance at the 0.05 level after the application of the input hypothesis within the classroom. Furthermore, the students’ overall attitude towards the course was found to be at a high-satisfaction level.
