None of us throw our class into a listening unprepared, do we? It would be unfair - after all, in real life, we're normally listening with certain expectations. But often in ELT, our pre-listening activities are limited to a bit of discussion of the topic and maybe some pre-teaching of new vocabulary. In this presentation, I want to suggest a richer diet of pre-listening ideas can offer support to our learners as they deal with this most difficult of skills. Also see our new listening book Authentic Listening in Practice, and sample lessons The Intelligence of Ants and Pronunciation for Listeners.

Also at TESOL France, Mark Hancock on Putting Motivation on the Map.
