These CDs contain the listening material for Academic Listening Encounters. The material includes warm-up listening exercises, informal interviews, and authentic classroom lectures. Using a content-based approach, Academic Listening Encounters helps prepare high intermediate ESL/EFL students for listening to lectures and taking notes in an English-speaking college environment. The content focus of the course is human behavior, which includes such high-interest topics as stress and health, intelligence, and friendship. These topics are explored through a series of tasks, based on the listening tape, that give students the opportunity to practice important listening, discussion, and note-taking skills such as: listening for implied information; summarizing; giving oral presentations; using symbols and abbreviation and using telegraphic language. Pre-listening tasks in the student book expose students to vocabulary they will encounter in the listening tape and help them acquire skills such as predicting the content and guessing meaning from context.
