This book contains activities that provide practice specifically in listening and encourages pupils to think about what they hear.
There are 21 listening activities altogether; the first five sequences have been recorded onto CD and are performed by professional actors with music and sound effects to enrich the listening activity. The five scripted activities are:
- The New Student
- The Oil Spill
- The Garden
- The World Foods Factory
- The Bullies
The longer recorded scenarios can be used as a basis for a complete lesson, or to ‘set the scene’ for a homework activity. The sixteen shorter, less complex tasks each have a photocopiable sheet for pupil use and a script for the teacher/support assistant to read.
