What aspects of listening, learning and listener character traits come into play when we take authentic listening texts into our classrooms and how might they relate to tasks and activities we devise? In this workshop we’ll look at the challenges authentic listening texts present for non-expert listeners around B2 level. We’ll then walk through a listening lesson and see how, with careful task-design, we can simultaneously mediate difficulty level and develop the listening skill. Participants will leave the session with ideas on how to develop listening materials for use with texts of their choice.
