Delta Academic Objectives: Listening and note-taking skills has been written to prepare students for academic listening, placing emphasis not only on practice with extended listening passages but also on continued language development through four main areas: Language focus, Listening for production, Listening for meaning and Vocabulary focus.

Delta Academic Objectives: Listening and note-taking skills develops essential comprehension skills in the context of real-life talks, presentations, and conversations with 3 hours of listening material. The length of the listening passages develop students’ ability to follow such talks, presentations and conversations for the longer periods of time common in academic and work environments.

Language Focus sections help students develop their note-taking skills, as well as their ability to recognize the underlying structures of talks and presentations.

Listening for Production and Listening for Meaning sections offer students opportunities to further apply listening strategies to help prepare for listening in real-life academic situations.
