Overview

The newly expanded Learn to Listen, Listen to Learn series prepares students for the rigors of academic classwork, helping them acquire the listening-comprehension and note-taking skills necessary for success.

This two-book series offers students valuable tips for getting the most from college lectures, including note-taking skills, organization of information, recognition of language cues, and the acquisition of vocabulary. Students are shown how a typical lecture is organized, using extensive excerpts and transcripts from authentic lectures on high-interest topics from a wide range of academic discipline.

Features:

  • Includes new and updated material, including expanded vocabulary, extension, and post-lecture activities to encourage students to discuss, research, and write about ideas raised in the lectures.
  • Teaches students how to recognize lecture organization, and how to evaluate and predict information.
  • Focuses on the acquisition of vocabulary, especially from the Academic Word List, and on the recognition of language cues.
  • Prepares students for academic testing with TOEFL-style test questions throughout the text.
