Task-Based Listening

What Every ESL Teacher Needs to Know
Steven Brown


Are you looking for activities to use in your listening classes beyond asking students to answer comprehension questions? In Task-Based Listening, author Steven Brown defines task-based listening (TBL) and describes how to build a task-based listening program, how to create a task-based listening lesson, ways to activate vocabulary acquisition and improve grammatical knowledge, and the links between listening and pronunciation. In addition, he covers the ways that metacognitive strategies can assist students when listening, the advantages of extensive listening, and the benefits of interactive listening. Readers will find specific tips and suggestions for using these concepts in the classroom.
