Take on Listening:Listening and Speaking Strategies Lesson 1 Exercise 1 Student: Excuse me. Counselor: Yes? Student: Do I need to make an appointment to register for an ESL class? Counselor: No, but you first have to take a placement test. Student: A test? Counselor: We need to find out what your ESL level is. Student: Oh, Okay. Where do I go to take the test? Counselor: We will be giving the test tomorrow at 3 o’clock in room 3
  03. Can you come then? Student: Yes. Counselor: Good. Now, let me give you some forms to fill out so we can begin the registration process. Please write your name and address here, and your ID number here. Student: Okay. What do I write under teacher and section? Counselor: You can leave those blank. We’ll fill it in tomorrow.
Exercise 2 Student A: I didn’t really understand what Ms. Smith was saying about the id, the superego and the ego. Student B: Oh, that’s easy. Look here on page
  53. The id is the part of our personality that wants instant gratification. The ego tries to help the id get what it wants, but in a logical and practical way. The superego is like the personality’s police force. It monitors the id and the ego. Student A: Oh, I think I’m getting it. You mean the id, ego and superego are all part of our personality? Student B: Right. They are all interacting. Student A: Do you think we’ll need to give definitions? Student B: I don’t know. We may just have to match the names with the definitions. But we’d better study this some more just to be safe.
A: I can’t believe it’s closed. I’ve got a class from 7 o’clock to 10 o’clock. What am I going to do? B: Well, there are some food machines in the Student Union. You could always go there. A: No way! I tried that once last semester and I got as sick as a dog. There’s got to be something better. B: Well, we can go down to Main Street. There are a couple of places that I’m sure are open. A: We’d never make it back in time. It’s already 6:
  40. I think I’ll pass out if I don’t get something. I came here right from work. I didn’t have time to stop by my apartment. B: I think there’s a stand in front of Smith Hall. You can at least get something warm there. A: Well, I guess we don’t have any other choice. B: Yeah, it’s either the canteen or three hours of listening to your stomach growl.
Teacher: Good evening class. Before we begin tonight’s lesson. I want to remind you about next Thursday’s midterm. Remember to review chapters one through eight in the book. You will be responsible for knowing all of the information in the chapters plus all of the other topics we have discussed in class. This test will include multiple choice, True/False, and essay questions. You will not be able to use any books, notes or dictionaries.
Now, last week, I spoke about the importance of using note cards and visual aids to prepare your speeches. Tonight I’m going to talk about specific things that will help you with your speech delivery. Please take careful notes so you can use those techniques to improve your speech delivery. The first and perhaps the most important element of good speech delivery is eye contact. It is extremely important, especially in the English-speaking world, to make eye contact with your entire audience. This may be very difficult for you if you come from a culture where making direct eye contact is a sign of disrespect. But, you really need to practice this skill until you are comfortable looking directly at all of your
audience members when you are speaking to them. Please note that you need to look at the entire audience. Please don’t direct your attention to just one person or one side of the room, and really be sure not to stare into the eyes of anyone for too long of a period. Next, you need to make sure that when you talk to your audience, you are enthusiastic about your topic and excited to share it with your audience. Vitality is a way of maintaining the audience’s attention and indicating to them that you firmly believe in what you are saying. Volume, intonation, facial expressions, and gestures all add to the vitality of your speech. Think abut a speaker you really liked. Did he or she just stand there and read words from a piece of paper? No, of course not. Probably the speaker was full of life and his or her energy forced you into becoming involved in caring about the topic of the speech.

  4. Dr. Stevens: Ted, can I speak to you a minute? Ted: Yes, Doctor Stevens? Dr. Stevens: I finished reading your essay and before I return it to you, I was hoping you might be able to come in and speak with me about it. Ted: Oh, uh, okay, sure.\ Dr. Stevens: Can you come during my office hours? Ted: I think so. When are they again? Dr. Stevens: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 o’clock until 4:
  30. Ted: That’s no problem Oh, wait a minute, I have football practice every day from 2 o’clock until 5 o’clock. Dr. Stevens: Hmm. Well, how about if we get together tomorrow right before class? Ted: Sure.

  5. You have reached the Student Union Activity Hotline. The following is a list of information and events for Thursday, September

  6. A: Let’s exchange phone numbers. That way, if one of us is absent, we can call each other for the homework assignments. B: That’s a great idea. My number is 555--A: Wait a second, this pen just died. Let me get another one. B: Here, take my pencil A: Thanks. Okay, what was it?
Exercise 2 A: Who’s your history professor? B: I’m in Dr. Leydorf’s class. A: Oh, How is he? B: The class is interesting and I really like him, but he’s a real stickler. If you’re more than fifteen minutes late, he marks you absent, and you have to hand in every assignment on time or he lowers your grade. A: Ooh! He sounds really tough.

A: How did you do on your composition? B: Oh, you won’t believe it. I hadn’t worked on it very long and I didn’t have time to check it over. When the teacher returned it to me with an “A” on it, you could have knocked me over with a feather! A: Wow. That’s great. You must be really smart. B: Or else just lucky.

  3. A: Let’s go to a movie tonight. B: Sorry, I’ve got to cram for a test tonight. I haven’t had a chance to study before now. A: Well, how about going to the late show? B: No, I’m going to need a good night’s sleep. I want to make sure that I’m ready for the test.
  4. A: All right. We promised each other we’d get this report done today. Let’s get cracking. B: Aw, it’s such a beautiful day. Can’t we go for a walk and do this later? A: No, we’ll need to return these books to the library by five o’clock. We really have to do this now.
  5. A: Gee. It’s already a quarter after ten. Maybe Ms. Hughes is absent today. B: Fat chance. She’s never been absent a day in her life. I was in her class last year and she even came in when she had the flu. A: Well I guess she really loves teaching. Oh, here she comes now.

I’m taking Biology 101 this semester. I’m going to the Student Union at 7:
  00. We’re discussing parapsychological phenomena. We are you returning to the computer lab? We’re meeting with Dr. Stevens at the end of the lesson.

I am transcribing my sociology notes. John is defending his dissertation on Tuesday. We are forming a study group on the first day of class. I’m applying for financial aid to help pay my tuition and expenses. Ms. Wilson is correcting our essays over the weekend.

The professor is coming. The professor is coming in a little while. The Sahkespeare Theater Group is performing Romeo and Juliet on the 17th.
  4. The Shakespeare Theater Group is performing Romeo and Juliet. The campus bookstore is having a big sale on all college sweatshirts. The campus bookstore is having a big sale on all college sweatshirts during Spring Break.
Using Intonation Clues
  1. I really wanted the new David Sedaris book. The professor in my contemporary lit class praised it all last semester. The bookstore
hasn’t been able to get a single copy for the last month. Oh, well. Maybe I can find a copy on Amazon.com.
  2. I used the new computer registration system to charge my tuition on my credit card, and they totally messed it up. They were
supposed to charge me $500 for the two art classes, and instead, it says that I’m enrolled in three history classes to the tune of $9
  00. This is ridiculous!
  3. Today is my graduation day. I am done! Now, I can finally spend my weekends doing something other than cramming for exams and
writing term papers. Yippee!
  4. This schedule is baffling. It says that English 90 is offered at both the midtown and downtown campuses, but the times are vague.
Look here; does this nine mean AM or PM? Hmm, I’m stumped.

Oh yeah. I absolutely recommend professor Ponz. She’s a real dilly, let me tell you. If you enjoy writing endless term papers on
meaningless subjects, participating in class activities that have zero relevance to the topic of the course, she’s the teacher for you! sarcastic
Lesson 2
Take on Listening:Listening and Speaking Strategies Lesson 2 Denise: Excuse me, miss, how much does it cost to ride BART? Stranger: Well, that depends on your destination. From here to Glen Park it’s only a dollar ten, but if you go as far as Fremont, it costs a lot more. Tom: We’re going to Berkeley. Do you know what the fare is? Stranger: There are two stations in Berkeley. Which one are you interested in? Denise: Oh, gee, I’m not sure. We’re from out of town. We’re visiting my sister. She told me her house is just a stone’s throw from the UC Berkeley campus. Which station is that? Stranger: The downtown Berkeley station is really close to the university. I’m sure that’s the one you want. Denise: Tom, are you going to remember this, or should I be jotting this down? Tom: What is there to write down, Denise? The woman is giving us very simple directions. So, how much is the fare to downtown Berkeley? Stranger: Let’s go take a look at the map over there. You see, the map shows you how much it costs to go from one station to another. Ah, there it is: two dollars and sixty-five cents. Tom: Two sixty-five? That’s highway robbery for such a short distance! Denise: You think that’s expensive? Tom from our house to Amherst it costs twice as much as that. Tom: Yeah, but that’s an hour ride. You really get your money’s worth. Stranger: Yeah…Uh…Well, did your sister explain which train to take? Tom: Berkeley. WE take the Berkeley train to Berkeley, right? Stranger: Well, no actually. That’s just one stop on the Richmond line. Here, let me show you on this map. Here we are a t Powell Street in San Francisco, and it’s basically a straight shot on the Richnond line to the downtown Berkeley station. Denise: Yes, my sister said we wouldn’t have to change trains. Stranger: Uh-oh, what time is it? Denise: It’s 8:
  15. Stranger: You can’t go directly to Berkeley from San Francisco after 8:
  04. Tom: Uh-oh. Is there another train we can catch? Stranger: Don’t worry. You can take the Pittsburg line. Look here, take the Pittsburg line to the 12th Street Station in Oakland, and then transfer to the Richmond train. The Richmond train will stop in Berkeley. Get off at the downtown station. From there you can walk to your sister’s house. Denise: We want to be there by 9 o’clock. If we have to transfer, we might be late. Do you think we’ll make it in time? Stranger: It doesn’t take that long. Let’s see; there’s a train from here at 8:
  18. It arrives at the 12th Street Oakland station at 8:
  34. You can get a Richmond train right away at 8:34, and you’ll arrive in Berkeley at 8:
  46. Tom: Let’s see if I’ve go t this right: We take the 8:18 Pittsburg train and arrive in Oakland at 8:
  34. Then we take the 8:34 Richmond train to Berkeley. That should be a snap. Stranger: Yeah, you’ll have no trouble. Tom: Thank you very much for your help, Miss. You’re a very kind young lady. Denise: And so pretty and smart, too! Tell me dear, I n
