The topic for this week’s #AusELT chat is…

…what are we really teaching when we ‘teach listening’?

Arguably, listening is a macro-skill we spend more time exercising than any other. For this reason alone, it is a key responsibility of teachers to provide students with meaningful assistance in developing their listening skills.

In our chat on Thursday February 7th, 8:30 EDST, we will discuss the current dominant approaches to ‘teaching listening’ and explore some possibilities for doing things differently.
