This intermediate text offers a rigorous, academically-focused listening program centered around a series of high-interest lectures. It is premised on the notion that second language learners must develop a much broader competency in listening comprehension than in speaking, since the listener has little or no control over the vocabulary, speech rate, or content used by the speaker.

Patricia A. Dunkel is Professor Emerita of Applied Linguistics at Georgia State University. Her research includes a focus on the utility and techniques of note-taking on second/foreign language (L2) listening comprehension.

She has given numerous research and teacher-training presentations on the topics in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. Her teaching experience includes positions at The Pennsylvania State University, the University of Arizona, Georgetown University, and Harvard University where she taught numerous graduate, and undergraduate students, as well as pre-university students of English as a second/foreign language.
Phyllis Lim, Ph.D., taught intensive ESL for over 20 years at the Center for English as a Second Language at the University of Arizona, directed the MATEFL Program at Bilkent University (Turkey) as a Fulbright Senior Scholar for two years, and directed the English Language Center at the University of Sharjah, UAE, for five years.
