English for Academic Study: Listening This fully updated 2012 edition of English for Academic Study: Listening will help you develop the listening and note-taking skills you need to participate effectively in academic lectures and seminars. The units are organized as follows: * Listening and lectures * Introductions to lectures * Identifying key ideas in lectures * Note-taking * Introducing new terminology * What lecturers do in lectures * Digressions Each unit includes video and audio recordings of authentic lectures from a range of academic fields, including banking, development economics, marketing, psychology and linguistics. These have been recorded in a genuine academic environment and are a perfect way to prepare for English-Medium study. The Course Book includes unit summaries to give you a quick overview of what you have covered, and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each unit also has weblinks offering additional information and activities, relating to both listening skills and the topics covered in the units.
