  2. The importance of listening • We cannot develop speaking skills unless we also develop listening skills. • It’s present in every act of communication. • Listening provides acquiring structures and vocabulary.

  3. Listening in real life • “Casual” listening: To listen with no particular purpose in mind (radio, chatting). • “Focussed” listening: To listen for a particular purpose, to find out information we need to know. We know beforehand what we are listening for.

  4. Other aspects of Real-life listening • Purpose and expectation. • Response. • Visibility of the speaker. • Environmental clues. • Shortness. • Informal speech (redundancy, noise, colloquial language, auditory character).

  5. Helping students to listen • Introduce the topic before getting the class to listen. • Ask questions about it. • Introduce new vocabulary. • Divide the listening into stages: First, main idea; then, details. • Let the students open their books to read while they listen.
