This unit focuses on teaching receptive skills. Reading and listening are equally important. There are two main reasons for reading and listening: for a purpose or for entertainment. There are five main ways for which we read and listen: for predictive skills, specific information (also called scanning), general idea (also referred to as skimming), detailed information, and deduction from context. There are many ways of approaching language difficulty. This unit includes pre-teaching vocabulary and careful selection of texts. Thereby, creating interest and choosing a topic wisely play a great role in language teaching. Some basic keys to successful receptive skill lessons include: choose material that interests the students, pre-teach complex vocabulary, vary the type of material and use realistic comprehension tasks that aid understanding.
