This lesson takes a different approach to developing listening skills. It enables each student to participate at their own level. There are no questions with correct answers or incorrect answers, instead the students do a number of different tasks and attempt to extract information from the text. They are then able to read the text and check their own answers. The teacher should act as a guide and facilitator and only input language when students ask for it and clarify misunderstandings. The lesson has a number of prompts which help the students to build their own understanding of the text.
