Listening Extra contains a bank of imaginative photocopiable materials designed for young adults (16+) and adults. There are over 50 easy-to-prepare activities at elementary, intermediate and upper-intermediate level. The material offers teachers a refreshing approach to 18 familiar topics and can be used to supplement existing coursebooks. Activities are designed around authentic scenarios and practise specific listening skills, such as listening for details, identifying emotions or listening for opinions. At the same time as practising a key listening skill, the activities integrate the other skill areas. Students are exposed to a variety of native and non-native speaker accents. The recordings cover a range of genres from radio and television to academic lectures, presentations and conversational dialogues.
