  3. Listening-discussion task • Discuss the questions in your groups. • Extra discussion questions: • What things do you have in your room right now that you can live without? • What things are absolutely essential for you?

  4. Listening strategy – Heavy stress • We learned before that we stress new information. • i.e., “Please pass me my wallet. The blue wallet, not the black wallet.” • We also use put stress on words to show importance.

  5. Listening strategy – Heavy stress We also use put stress on words to show importance. • i.e., “I want to drink sojutonight.” • This indicates that “tonight” is important. • “I want to drink soju tonight.” • This indicates that “soju” is important.

  9. Listening strategy – Heavy stress • You should try to listen for this in all situations. • Helps you to better catch important points. • Can help you understand the MAIN IDEA!

  10. Listening for main/important ideas • Also known as ‘extensive listening’ because we need to listen in a more general way.

  11. Listening for main/important ideas Tips: 1. Take notes when you can: • - It’s normal to forget things after you hear them. - Writing can help you remember more easily. - Writing something encourages you to focus on and identify the main ideas (and important details). • - Can help you identify what you do and do not understand.

  12. Listening for main/important ideas Tips: 2. Listen for stressed or repeated words/ideas. • - Often, a speaker will put stress on certain words or repeat ideas important to the dialog. • - May rephrase the important information. • - May repeat the important information. • - May summarize the information.

  13. Listening for main/important ideas • The main idea is often given near the beginning of a dialog (the “topic sentence”).

  14. Listening for main/important ideas Tips: 3. Use your own knowledge and experience. • - Try to make connections between what you are hearing and your own knowledge/experience. • i.e., If someone is talking about fishing, and fishing is your hobby, you can use your existing knowledge to help you understand.

  15. Listening for main/important ideas Tips: 4. Make predictions about what is coming next. • - Try to guess what the speaker(s) will say.
