The Active Listening series is a three-level listening course in
North American English.
Active Listening, Second edition is grounded in the theory that
learners are more successful listeners when they activate their
prior knowledge of a topic. Through a careful balance of
activities, students learn to listen for main ideas, to listen for
details, to listen and make inferences - and finally to progress
from listening to personalized speaking. Class Audio CDs include
natural conversational recordings for the listening tasks in each
unit, pronunciation practice, and expansion units containing
authentic student interviews.
