When teaching receptive skills, the objective should be to motivate and prepare students for reading and listening. Pre-listening activities are a useful tool used to prepare students for reading and listening. The activities are expected inform the student what they are about the read/listen to and compare how it relates to their experiences in life. Also, it helps students to focus their attention to enable them to understand keywords they would come across in the reading/listening. This is very interesting to see on the faces of students as they experience the 'ah ha' moment.
