Collecting information about students' listening abilities and needs is a relatively easy thing to do, and access to such information can be used to inform and guide classroom practice. In this talk, we'll examine some classroom listening data, and share ideas on what it suggests for an emergent classroom listening syllabus. We'll then go on to place this in the wider general context of the challenges non-expert listeners face when trying to understand spoken English and take a brief look at some activities we can use to help students improve their listening.
