English for Academic Study: Listening

This fully updated 2012 edition of English for Academic Study: Listening will help you develop the listening and note-taking skills you need to participate effectively in academic lectures and seminars.

 The units are organized as follows:

  • Listening and lectures
  • Introductions to lectures
  • Identifying key ideas in lectures
  • Note-taking
  • Introducing new terminology
  • What lecturers do in lectures
  • Digressions

Each unit includes video and audio recordings of authentic lectures from a range of academic fields, including banking, development economics, marketing, psychology and linguistics. These have been recorded in a genuine academic environment and are a perfect way to prepare for English-Medium study.

The Course Book includes unit summaries to give you a quick overview of what you have covered, and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each unit also has weblinks offering additional information and activities, relating to both listening skills and the topics covered in the units.

This book can be used in conjunction with the following books in the English for Academic Study (EAS) series, also published by Garnet Education: EAS: Reading, EAS: Writing, EAS: Extended Writing & Research Skills, EAS: Speaking, EAS VocabularyEAS: Pronunciation and EAS: Grammar for Writing.

"If you spend a few minutes flipping through their pages, you will discover a real treasure for your academic classes. It is definitely worth reading them!"

- Liliana Burga Yuy for IATEFL Voices, Issue 236, January / February 2014

“The particular listening skills required for lectures, especially those in western HE contexts, how prior knowledge of the format of lectures can help, and coping with the realities of listening, such as lecturers’ digressions, are covered. The role of pronunciation patterns, particularly stress in sentences and within words and its role in communicating meaning, is featured. Units focus on both macro and micro skills and in this way ensure that the role of language in improving comprehension, including lexical knowledge, is not neglected. The units comprise a range of activities which can allow for learner interaction and differentiation to cope with differing levels of proficiency; clear links are made with the Vocabulary Study Book. Other strengths of the course are the online resource suggestions and study skills strands; advice sections are placed within units for listening skill support. A comprehensive introduction orients tutors and students to these elements.”

- Clare Anderson for the ESP SIG Journal, Issue 41, April 2013
