Description

 

 

Listening Power is a three-book series with a targeted approach to teaching the listening skills that students need inside and outside the classroom and on standardized tests such as the TOEFL and TOEIC.

 

Listening Power 3 features four distinct parts designed to be used concurrently.

  • Language Focus teaches essential and sometimes difficult advanced-level skills such as reduced forms, patterns of intonation, and idiomatic expressions.
  • Comprehension Focus presents skills for understanding main ideas, supporting ideas, and details; making inferences, distinguishing facts and opinions; and recognizing organizational patterns. Activities to help students apply the skills follow the presentation.
  • Note-Taking Skills teaches students how to identify important words and information. This section also presents helpful techniques such as use of abbreviations, symbols, and formatting.
  • Listening for Pleasure uses interesting audio material from movies, TV, radio, and recorded storytelling to help students understand the more subtle meaning communicated through tone of voice, sentence stress, and reduced forms.
