Independent Listening

Independent Listening

Trinity's Integrated Skills in English exam involves an independent listening task designed to assess the candidates ability to deal with reallife listening to podcasts, classes or lectures. In this session we'll begin by looking at the difference between interactive and independent listening, and at the special difficulties the latter supposes for the listener. Then we'll explore a range of activities that we can use to help learners to become better independent listeners.
