While-Listening Activities

During-Listening tasks are a series of activities that a learner does while listening to a passage in order to show their understanding of what was heard of.

Well-designed  activities can help students to:

  1. Identify what’s important in a passage.
  2. Perceive the text structure.
  3. Keep themselves concentrated throughout the passage.
