Academic Objectives Listening and note-taking Skills Teacher's Book
by Thompson, Mike Published by Delta Publishing
Delta Academic Objectives: Listening Skills has been written to prepare students for academic listening, placing emphasis not only on practice with extended listening passages but also on continued language development through three main areas: Language Focus, Extension, and Vocabulary.
Listening activities develop essential comprehension skills in the context of real-life talks, presentations, and conversations. The length of the listening passages develops students' ability to follow such talks, presentations, and conversations for the longer periods of time common in academic and work environments.
Language Focus sections help students develop their note-taking skills, as well as their ability to recognize the underlying structures of talks and presentations.
Extension activities are found throughout the book, and offer students opportunities to further apply the language skills they are working on.
Vocabulary activities are designed to help students increase their lexical range, giving them experience - in context - with lower-frequency vocabulary, as well as developing their ability to use words and phrases they already have some familiarity with.
