Course Details

When students first learn a language, they are usually overwhelmed by everything they hear. They strain at "catching" every word believing that, by doing so, they will understand. In real life, however, comprehending language is more about the ability to select specific information from a stream of words and making sense out of it. In order to develop this ability, one needs to train the mind to listen for important information and screen out unnecessary words. Through a variety of simple listening tasks and activities, this class aims to help the beginning-level student feel more at ease and begin comprehending English in a speedier and more effective manner.
