Teaching listening: Research and strategies

  • Session A

Presenter(s): Chiara Bruzzano

This interactive talk will discuss how listening works in English as a Foreign Language and how research evidence can be harnessed in everyday teaching. Drawing on existing evidence (including the presenter’s own research) and practical examples, the talk will explore how listening works, how it develops in students according to Information Theory, what difficulties students may have, and how teachers can use awareness of these areas to develop their teaching practices related to listening.
