The course covers a variety of topics and task types and is open to staff and students from across the university. We will listen to speakers of English from around the world and use various sources of online recordings, e.g. the BBC, YouTube. You will also be introduced to online listening resources for self-study. Some sessions have a general skills focus while others are based around topics of general interest, e.g. language or health. A full transcript of all the listening texts will be available at the end of each class.
