Active Listening, Second Edition is a fully updated and revised edition of the popular 3-level listening series for adult and young-adult learners of North American English. Each level offers students 16 engaging, task-based units, each built around a topic, function or grammatical theme. Grounded in the theory that learners are more successful listeners when they activate their prior knowledge of a topic, the series gives students a frame of reference to make predictions about what they will hear. Through a careful balance of activities, students learn to listen for main ideas, to listen for details, and to listen and make inferences. Active Listening, Second Edition is intended for high-beginning to intermediate students. It can be used as a main text for listening classes or as a component in speaking or integrated skills classes.
