Summary

This volume offers a set of listening activities at three levels of proficiency on the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages proficiency scale: Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced. It has been designed to accompany any type of textbook with any type of instruction. Its purpose is to provide learners with the opportunity to hear authentic, unadapted Japanese and to learn to listen to the kind of information one would hear while traveling, living, or studying in Japan. The recorded materials used for these listening activities are authentic; they were originally recorded for Japanese audiences. Nothing has been altered or simplified in order to give the listener an opportunity to develop strategies that will increase their skills. The listening tasks have been designed to: (1) duplicate the requirements of real-life listening situations; and (2) to train students to decode efficiently and concentrate on the known to fill in the comprehension gaps that occur in a new text in a foreign language. The exercises begin with a pre-listening activity (i.e., discussion or brainstorming). After this initial preparation, students listen to the recording to identify the topic. Students are then given a number of problem situations that must be solved by extracting information from the text. A post-listening discussion concludes the activity. (VWL)
