Designed for the beginning adult student who has no knowledge of English, this text teaches practical communicative listening skills through focused listening tasks. These tasks teach students how to focus on specific information and screen out irrelevant material, how to interact in given contexts, and how to ask for clarification if the information is unclear. Students are exposed to simple, everyday language that has immediate, practical value outside the classroom. The material is recycled from unit to unit, ensuring comprehension and progress. Exercises and illustrations help students build an essential vocabulary. A separate teacher's text and listening cassettes are also available.
