Active Listening is a low-intermediate text with twenty engaging, task-based units, each built around a topic, function, or grammatical theme. Students are taught how to listen through a careful balance of activities including global listening, listening for details, and making inferences. This unique text draws on recent "schema theory" research in reading and applies it to listening. By activating students' knowledge of a topic before they listen, the text gives them a frame of reference to make intelligent predictions about what they will hear. The book provides carefully worded, easy-to-understand instructions. A Teacher's Manual that supports teachers with a variety of backgrounds and needs and a set of two cassettes are also available.Helgesen, Marc is the author of 'Active Listening Building Skills for Understanding Student's Book' with ISBN 9780521398824 and ISBN 0521398827.
