Skills in English Listening Level 3 Teacher's Book The Garnet Education Skills in English series was highly commended in the Duke of Edinburgh English Speaking Union English Language Book Award in 2004. This course is part of the Skills in English series from Garnet Education. It is designed to help students cope with talks and lectures in English. At Level 3, students learn how to: * recognise fixed phrases in the stream of speech; * use abbreviations and symbols in note-taking; * take notes of stories, ideas, etc.; * leave space in notes for missing information; * recognise digressions; * understand signpost language; * recognise rhetorical questions; * distinguish fact from opinion; * understand a speaker's argument; * guess the spelling of proper nouns; * and understand dramatic language. In addition, students acquire key vocabulary in the following thematic areas: * Education * Daily Life * Work and Business * Science and Nature * The Physical World * Culture and Civilization * They Made Our World * Art and Literature * Sports and Leisure * Nutrition and Health.
Key features of the Teacher's Book are: * a facsimile of the related Course Book page, for ease of reference; * an introduction to the approach taken in the course; * lesson-by-lesson notes; * a full answer key, including model answers where appropriate; * language and culture notes, where these will assist the teacher in understanding learning difficulties or confusions of the target students; * methodology notes, where the value of an exercise, or the way to conduct it, may not be self-evident; * and a full transcript of the listening material. As well as preparing students for entry into English-medium study, the Skills in English Course is ideal for students who wish to improve their scores in skills-based examinations for university entry requirements, such as the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Rather than focusing on exam preparation, Skills in English teaches the necessary skills as part of a systematic programme of language development. Skills in English courses are also available in Speaking, Reading and Writing. See the Skills in English website at skillsinenglish.com for additional materials and help.
