Is there more to helping English students develop listening skills than pressing play on a textbook recording or a YouTube video? After all, listening is an imperceptible, individual process. If our students say they 'don't understand', we can't easily hear, see or react to the source of the problem in the same way we can in speaking, writing and even reading activities. And yet, this invisible process is the only one fully controlled by the teacher - he or she is traditionally the only one in control of the play button.
In order to tackle this predicament, we will break down the general concept of 'listening skills' into more manageable components that can be targeted through classroom-friendly tasks. We will practice designing and implementing these tasks based on three main sources of listening input: textbook recordings, authentic audio and video materials, and teacher talk.
