Listening activities for lower-intermediate and intermediate students. Task Listening aims to help students to sift out relevant information and ignore redundant features in spoken language – a skill vital to efficient listening at all levels of language learning. Each unit in this book consists of a short audio recording and related reading and writing tasks. The recordings are of people speaking at a normal speed in everyday situations. Having completed the necessary language work, students listen to the audio, e.g. listening for flight announcements at an airport, and extract the information necessary to complete a simple task, such as labelling a picture or filling in a grid.
