Listening activities for lower-intermediate and intermediate students. Task Listening aims to develop the listening skills of students who have had little exposure to authentic spoken English. Each of the twenty-six units consists of a short audio recording with people speaking in everyday situations and related reading and writing follow-ups. Having completed language work, students listen to the audio and extract the information necessary to complete a simple task, such as labelling a picture or filling in a grid. This way students learn how sift out relevant information and ignore redundant features in spoken English – a skill vital to efficient listening at all levels of language learning.
