Train, rather than just test, your student in listening. Real Lives, Real Listening will teach students vital skills they need to listen more effectively to English, however it is spoken. Through authentic recordings, the course exposes students to the grammatical structures and lexis which are more frequently used in spoken English throughout the world. This new edition from Collins combines all three topics into one book.
This course will boost students' confidence and raise their awareness of the differences between spoken and written English, and is underpinned by the latest academic theories on the importance of authentic listening practice in language acquisition. The materials are topic-based and are extremely easy for students and teachers to use and relate to. This book will also help students prepare for exams such as IELTS, TOEFL, CAE and FCE.
