The general objective of this course is to provide teaching-learning activities which should contribute to the development of the skill of understanding spoken English, particularly in an academic context, e.g. lectures and discussions. Since English is the language of instruction at colleges of Engineering, students must possess the requisite ability to listen to a lecture in English and to take notes on it; the lecture method is an integral part of the instructional process in institutions of higher education. Specific performance objectives: by the end of this course, students should be able to (locate and understand specific information in a recording, understand the overall message (gist) of the recording, recall specific information in the text). Extract the relevant points to summarize the whole recording, a specific idea or the underlying idea – in other words, make notes.
