Product description

This book combines up-to-date listening theory with case studies of actual pedagogical practice.

Listening, an essential aspect of communicative competence, merits equal treatment with the skills of speaking, reading, and writing. Second Language Listening combines current theory in listening, a pedagogical model developed by the authors, and case studies presenting actual practice. Listening theory is exemplified throughout the book with a variety of tasks and activities. The authors also address testing and the role of technology in teaching listening. Teachers will benefit from the insights provided in this book, as will teacher educators and researchers.

Second Language Listening will be of key interest for pre-service and in-service teachers who are involved in the teaching or the design of materials for listening.
