Finding Your Way with Listening

By Jennifer Loughton

Listening is an often neglected area of language study and exploration. Because it is seen primarily as a receptive mode there can seem to be little ‘mileage’ in making it a focus of dynamic teaching and learning in the English classroom.

However this book and the accompaniment Finding Your Way with Speaking dispel this idea. Jennifer Loughton has gathered ideas and developed activities which have been designed to support teaching and learning about listening as a language function: its processes, its importance in communication, its role in critical thinking and evaluation, and its relationship with speaking. A combination of teacher information pages and fun student activity pages across four comprehensive sections provide excellent additional material for teachers working in the areas of communication studies, and persuasive language.

Finding Your Way With Listening explores listening as a process, in particular its relationship to speaking and explores the different kinds of listening that we do in a range of contexts and situations. The teacher materials comprise a gathering together of points, ideas, historical notes, contemporary thoughts and unusual facts about listening which can provide ‘points of entry’ into many areas of language study.

Finding Your Way With Listening provides a companion study to Finding Your Way With Speaking by the same author.
