Active Listening 1 Teacher's Manual with Audio CD

Active Listening, Second Edition is a fully updated and revised edition of the popular 3-level listening series for adult and young-adult learners of North American English. Each level offers students 16 engaging, task-based units, each built around a topic, function or grammatical theme. Grounded in the theory that learners are more successful listeners when they activate their prior knowledge of a topic, the series gives students a frame of reference to make predictions about what they will hear. Through a careful balance of activities, students learn to listen for main ideas, to listen for details, and to listen and make inferences. Active Listening, Second Edition is intended for high-beginning to intermediate students. It can be used as a main text for listening classes or as a component in speaking or integrated skills classes.

Teaching EFL Learners Shadowing for Listening

Developing learners' bottom-up skills

Teaching EFL Learners Shadowing for Listening

Shadowing, an active and highly cognitive technique for EFL listening skill development, in which learners track heard speech and vocalize it simultaneously, is gradually becoming recognized. However, there remain a lot of mysteries and misunderstandings about it. This book uncovers shadowing in terms of theory and practice. This book cements shadowing as a separate technique from other similar techniques such as Elicited Imitation, Mirroring, and simple repetition, and provides ample empirical data to explain the function of Shadowing. It also elaborates on how Shadowing should be used in terms of materials, procedure, and learners’ psychology, which would aid in instructors’ use of Shadowing in teaching. A guide on a method effective in improving learners’ bottom-up listening skills, this book will certainly prove useful to English Language learners and instructors in their linguistic pursuits.
