Synopsis

English for Academic Study: Listening 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.
