Practical Tips for Increasing Listening Practice Time
McCaughey, Kevin
English Teaching Forum, v53 n1 p2-13 2015
Learning a language--like learning to dance ballet, weaving carpets, or playing the saxophone--takes time and practice. In general, it is safe to say that the more practice one gets, the better one will become. This article will help teachers of English reconsider how to think about listening tasks. It will provide guidance for increasing classroom listening practice through short, "dedicated" listening tasks. The emphasis is not on the science or theory of processing language--many other articles cover that--but on the practical business of setting up and "class-managing" listening activities in order to give students more practice.
