About the talk

Lower-level learners can find authentic listening texts impenetrable, especially outside the managed confines of the classroom. This talk will examine how learners’ inability to understand real listening texts makes them feel. It will encourage teachers to recognise how learners respond emotionally to authentic material, and will suggest practical ideas to maintain learners’ motivation and help them achieve measurable, identifiable progress.
