Focused Listening Tasks for Beginners
Oxford University Press
Put listening first in this first-place workbook of listening tasks for beginners! This text assumes no previous knowledge of English and aims at familiarizing students with natural spoken English. Students learn how to focus on specific information and screen out irrelevant material, how to interact in given contexts, and how to ask for clarification when information is unclear. Exercises, illustrations, and material recycled from unit to unit help build essential vocabulary and comprehension. The 10 theme-based units focus on letters, names, numbers, directions, parts of the body, occupations, and the weather.
