  2. 2. Let’s Review Hobbies – different activities you like to do in your spare time  Reading  Sports  Arts and crafts  Movies  Etc.
  3. 3. Identify the Hobby
  4. 4. Today Continue work on hobbies Focus on listening
  5. 5. There Are Different Ways to Listen! Just like with reading, you can use different skills when you listen For example, with reading, you have learned:  To find the main idea  Scanning There are skills you can practice to listen more effectively
  6. 6. Selective Listening What – selective listening happens when you do not focus on all of the words being spoken, just the specific information you are interested in When – you would use selective listening when you were interested in learning a specific piece of information  What situations do you think this might apply in? Why would you listen selectively?
  7. 7. Why Learn Selective Listening? To learn  How much does something cost?  What are the hours of a certain business?  Is there a process you need to follow before going somewhere?  Etc. To save time  Know what you need to before doing something so you don’t have to repeat a step or do something unnecessarily
  8. 8. How?! When learning a new language it can be very hard to know what is important to listen to and what isn’t! It’s a process Just like with everything you’ve learned, selective listening takes practice
  9. 9. Tips for Listening Selectively Plan  Think ahead about what you want to learn or what you want to know so that you will know what to listen for  Write down questions you want to have answered, the information you want to obtain. For example  How much will this cost?  Where is this located/what is the address?  What time does the program start?
  10. 10. More Tips… Listen  Listen more than once if you need to, call back and listen to the recording again  Ask whomever is speaking to repeat the point that was interesting to you Write  Notes with information you are interested in (while you listen)  Questions you would like ask to receive clarification  Words you don’t understand
  11. 11. Let’s Practice! From our work this week it is clear that you all enjoy watching movies! Audio-recording from a movie theatre that lists:  Movie times  Theatre location  Costs  Deals
  12. 12. First Listen We will listen to this recording twice First time  As a group  We are listening for the price of matinee tickets  Matinee – noun – a French word that means a show that plays during the afternoon
  13. 13. This listening exercise is featured in Randall’s ESL Café, a website of teacher resources for listening activities TESL Student/Teacher instructions:  Click on the link above  Scroll down to “II Listening Exercises”  Press the play button to listen to the recording
  14. 14. Second Listen Second time  Looking at our handouts  Listen to complete the information on your handout Now, let’s practice our selective listening skills  Look at your handout  Let’s review the information you will be listening for  Write down the information from the recording that answers these questions or fills in these blanks
  15. 15. Notice… Were there any words or terms you did not understand?  Kitty-corner  Box office We usually review new vocabulary before we do an exercise! With selective listening is not necessary to understand every word you hear as long as you understand the information you require
