Slide 1 - Tekstslide

What do you do before you listen?

Slide 2 - Open vraag

Before listening:
  • Consider the topic of the text you are going to listen to.
     What do you already know about it? What might be the content of the text?
      Which words come to mind that you already know? 

  • If you have a task to do, check whether you understand the instructions.

  • Think about the type of text you are going to listen to.
      What do you know about this type of text?

  • Relax and make yourself focus on the listening text.

Slide 3 - Tekstslide

What do you while you listen?

Slide 4 - Open vraag

While listening:
  • Focus on key words and facts. 

  • Take notes to support your memory.

  • It is not necessary to understand every single word. Don't fret on those words that you       don't understand immediately. 

  • If there are words or issues that you need to know to understand the text,  use your general knowledge as well as the context to find out the meaning.

  • Try to think ahead. What might happen next? What may people say?

Slide 5 - Tekstslide

What do you do after you listen?

Slide 6 - Open vraag

After listening:
  • Think about the text again. Have you understood the main points?

  • Remember the speculations you made before you listened?  Did they come true?

  • Have you had any problems while listening? Do you have any problems now to complete your task?

  • Check whether you have completed your task as well as you can.
