English for academic study: Listening focuses on transcripts from actual lectures recorded in a real academic environment, and is therefore ideal for students preparing for English-medium study.
 
The lecture extracts are taken from a range of academic fields, including banking, development economics, marketing, psychology, and linguistics. The extracts have been chosen to be accessible to a general audience, while at the same time appealing to students studying these subjects.
 
The units are organized as follows:
 
  • Listening and Lectures
  • Introductions to Lectures
  • Identifying Key Ideas in Lectures
  • Note-taking
  • Introducing New Terminology
  • What Professors Do in Lectures
  • Digressions
 
Each unit has weblinks offering additional information and activities, related to both listening skills and the topics covered in the units. A dedicated website, www.englishforacademicstudy.com, offers further instructor resources.
 
This book can be used in conjunction with the following books in the English for academic study series, also published by Garnet Education: EAS Reading & Writing, EAS Extended Writing & Research Skills, EAS Vocabulary, and EAS Speaking & Pronunciation.
