Easy listening exercise for ESL students
from By: Douglas Magrath
From July 24:
Students need to bridge the gap between short ESL exercises and real lectures. The trend is now toward authentic texts, radio broadcasts and real lectures for college ESL to promote student learning and interest by stressing communication skills and presenting culture in a natural way. Listening is considered an active skill, and is emphasized in today's proficiency-oriented classrooms. Due to poor listening skills, students may not be ready to follow academic lectures and demonstrations when competing with native speakers.
