Teaching and Researching Listeningprovides a focused, state-of-the-art treatment of the linguistic, psycholinguistic and pragmatic processes that are involved in oral language use, and shows how these processes influence listening in a range of practical contexts. Through understanding the interaction between these processes, language educators and researchers can develop more robust research methods and more effective classroom language teaching approaches.
In this fully revised and updated second edition, the book:
· examines a full range of teaching methods and research initiatives related to listening
· gives definitions of key concepts in neurolinguistics and psycholinguistics
· provides a clear agenda for implementing listening strategies and designing tests
· offers an abundance of resources for immediate use for teaching and research
Featuring insightful quotes and concept boxes, chapter overviews and summaries to guide the reader, Teaching and Researching Listening will engage and inform teachers, teacher trainers and researchers investigating communicative language use.
