Listening to the News is a three-book series designed to improve listening comprehension skills for academic purposes while providing interesting topics related to culture, news, and current events.
Each of the twenty units contains an authentic news report frm Voice of America, a multimedia broadcasting service funded by the US government. These reports highlight a wide variety of regional and global topics which are grouped into four major themes: ""American Life,"" ""General Interest,"" ""Science,"" and ""World Interest.""
Each unit begins by introducing students to the language, background and cultural information relevant to the news story. In addition to systematically guided listening comprehension activities with introduced vocabulary, students can focus on different phonetic areas exclusive to the listening passage, note taking, and summary activity. Finally, each unit ends with thought-provoking questions designed to increase student fluency and vocabulary retention.
