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.

Vocabulary Focus activities are designed to help students increase their lexical range, giving them experience – in context – with lower-frequency vocabulary, as well as developing their ability to use words and phrases from the Academic Word List.
