Active Listening Second edition is a fully updated and revised edition of the popular 3-level listening series for adult and young-adult learners of North American English. Each level offers students 16 engaging, task-based units, each built around a topic, function or grammatical theme. Grounded in the theory that learners are more successful listeners when they activate their prior knowledge of a topic, the series gives students a frame of reference to make predictions about what they will hear. Through a careful balance of activities, students learn to listen for main ideas, to listen for details, and to listen and make inferences.Active Listening Second edition is intended for high-beginning to intermediate students. It can be used as a main text for listening classes or as a component in speaking or integrated skills classes.Features of the Student's Book* A before-you-begin unit to develop awareness of listening strategies.* Updated prelistening schema-building activities to build vocabulary.* New listen-again activities for additional coverage of listening skills.* Optional your-turn-to-talk pages that offer speaking and pronunciation practice.* New culturally rich Expansion units that include authentic student interviews.* A new self-study listening section with audio CD for additional practice.Features of the Teacher's Manual* Step-by-step teaching notes with key words highlighted.* A wealth of optional speaking activities and listening strategies.* Suggested times for completing lessons.* Photocopiable unit quizzes.* Two complete tests with audio CD.* Complete answer keys.
