Teaching and Researching: Listening
Michael Rost

Teaching and Researching: Listening provides an up-to-date summary of
teaching and researching listening to meet the changing needs of
language and linguistics students, teachers and researchers. Firstly
discussing the history, context and background to listening, it then
looks at key questions which can be addressed through research and
provides practical ideas for linking research issues to actual
teaching practice. Michael Rost treats listening in language learning
as a distinct field of inquiry, arguing that that the traditional way
of including listening as part of oral language or communication
studies does not give the topic adequate treatment. Teaching and
Researching: Listening provides a thorough and practical treatment of
both the linguistic and the pragmatic processes that are involved in
oral language use from the perspective of the listener.Through
understanding the interaction between these processes, language
educators and researchers can develop more insightful, valid and
effective ways of teaching and researching listening. The inclusion of
a broad range of ideas and practical tools for the construction of
teaching and research models will engage and inform all those
investigating communicative language use. Written in a highly
accessible style, Teaching and Researching: Listening has a variety of
learning aids and teaching resources:

-definitions of key concepts in psycholinguistics
-concept boxes allowing readers to review key ideas
-quotes from leading figures in applied linguistics
- categorisation of instructional concepts related to oral language 
teaching
- analysis of testing practices
- a range of realistic research projects, including procedural 
guidelines
Michael Rost is a lecturer at the University of California, Berkeley.
